Deliveroo Ireland Partners With Women's Aid To Support National Helpline

Deliveroo Ireland has announced a partnership with Women's Aid to support its 24 hour national freephone helpline, which offers confidential information, support and understanding to women in the Republic of Ireland experiencing domestic violence. The service also supports family members, friends, and professionals who have concerns about a person they know or with whom they are working who might be experiencing domestic violence and abuse.


Deliveroo riders will feature the 24 hour national freephone helpline number on their delivery bags. The initiative is designed to raise awareness of the service.

In addition to promoting the helpline through its rider network, Deliveroo Ireland has launched an in-app fundraiser that will allow Deliveroo customers to make donations to Women's Aid when ordering with Zambrero, Chopped, Sano, Sprezzatura, Umi Falafel, Oak Fire Pizza, Jump Juice, Chimac, V-Face and Meltdown. 100% of the money raised will go towards supporting the Women's Aid 24 hour national freephone helpline, as well as other essential services provided by the charity such as the one to one support service, which provides information and support to women experiencing domestic violence.

This partnership is a part of Deliveroo’s Full Life campaign - Deliveroo's commitment to play an active role in Irish communities and work with its network of customers, restaurants, grocers and riders to support local neighbourhoods. ​​

Commenting on the partnership Breffney Brass, director of Deliveroo Ireland, said, "Deliveroo is proud to use our visibility in communities across Ireland to support the invaluable work of Women's Aid. Our restaurant partners and riders are well placed to shine a spotlight on the issues which impact society - that's exactly what our Full Life campaign is all about. Deliveroo wholeheartedly supports Women's Aid's ultimate aim to create a society which does not tolerate violence against women."

Sarah Benson, CEO of Women's Aid, stated:, "Women's Aid strives to encourage society as a whole to better prevent abuse and increase protections for women and girls. We are heartened to see Deliveroo take this call to action seriously by shining a spotlight on the Women's Aid services through their rider network and we are so grateful to their restaurants and customers who are helping raise essential funds for Women's Aid so we can continue delivering our vital services."
