Covid-19 Information and Updates

Member support and our office arrangements

We want contact and connection with our members and other stakeholders to be maintained. We are working remotely on a temporary basis, but all our team are easily contactable. Visit Our Team page which provides emails and direct dial numbers. We have business continuity arrangements in place to ensure we can function as fully as possible and will continue to keep the situation under ongoing review. Our team are continuing with planned meetings to the extent possible, facilitated by VC or conference call. 

Steering / Working Groups 

All Steering and Working Group meetings have been converted to conference calls for the foreseeable future. Everyone who sits on a working group should have received communications on this – if members have any questions, please contact us.

Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Vulnerable Communities

Covid-19 emergency fundIn April basis.point and Irish Funds launched a Covid-19 emergency relief fund to help raise much needed funds to help disadvantaged communities as they struggle with the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Our industry recently reached the goal of raising €200K and the fund has already dispersed funds to a range of programmes aimed at alleviating the issues of food and hygiene poverty, mental health and emotional well-being, access to technology, and families living with homelessness.
