About Us

Founded in 2020, Shining Light Galway is a group of committed local residents who have come together to provide voluntary assistance to minority groups affected by poverty, particularly people living in Direct Provision. We are tackling issues through direct actions such as the delivery of food rescued from waste (in conjunction with Food Cloud), redistribution of unwanted furniture items, free books for children, support with mental health needs and any other type of advice or assistance we can provide to marginalised people.

We enjoy what we do, and as we do it off our back. We are active on a daily basis. We are doing our best. We would like people to volunteer with us. However, if you cannot, we would be grateful if you could please donate. Please share our page and share our work, as it would definitely help.
