Irish Aid is the Irish Government's overseas development programme, as funded by the Irish taxpayer. Concern and Irish Aid have a long-standing partnership focused on our common goals of tackling extreme poverty and reducing humanitarian need.
Irish Aid is one of Concern’s largest and most valued institutional donors. With the €31 million Irish Aid provided to our programmes in 2022, Concern supported over 2.9 million people.
In Ireland, Irish Aid also supports Concern to engage the Irish public through awareness-raising and development education. Through initiatives such as Project Us and the Concern Debates, we support members of the Irish public to become active Global Citizens and build an understanding of Ireland’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
