The Barretstown and DCU Partnership was announced in late 2019. DCU is the first university to engage in a charity partnership of this type, the impetus having come from the ‘Our DCU’ initiative. 

Despite the difficulties caused by COVID 19 since this partnership was announced, DCU students and staff have already raised more than €28,000 for the charity. 

DCU students and staff have also signed up to volunteer for a variety of activities.
