Stories are a communal currency of humanity.”

We here at ATD Ireland firmly believe that everyone deserves a chance to be listened to and to have their voice heard. This collective blog was created to give people and in particular those with a direct experience of poverty a platform to share their thoughts and an opportunity to speak about their experiences, challenges, aspirations, ideas, fears, dreams and hopes.

If you are interested in writing a piece for us on the impacts of poverty or similarly related topics, please submit your post by sending an email to

Every voice counts.
