Community Services

Volunteer service

Kerry Islamic Outreach Society (KIOS) has been established to serve the wider community.

Volunteering is the lifeblood of any community. It is because of volunteers that communities are able to run organizations, social services, conferences, playgroups, drop-in centers, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, open libraries, run schools, set up blood banks, and the list goes on. Paid employees only make up a small part of the social services network; without volunteers such endeavors would come to a standstill.

In KIOS there is a strong ethos of volunteerism. This does not simply extend to running study circles or fundraising. As a volunteer, we see our role as world citizens. We aim to work for a better society which extend to the broader whole community.


Homelessness is a very important issue in our country

Homelessness is a very important issue in our country and its on rise. It can mean sleeping rough, staying in emergency hostels or shelters, staying in temporary bed and breakfast accommodation or staying with friends and relatives when there is nowhere else to go. Homelessness is all of these things. For people experiencing homelessness it is about a lack of security, a lack of belonging and often about being cold, sick and isolated.

Kerry Islamic Outreach has been helping Arlington house in Tralee especially during festive seasons and other time of the year to bring smile on the face of those unfortunate people. We strongly believe that they are a part of community and need our love and affection. During last winter we gather up with local friends and volunteers and collected dozens of clothes and utensils for them. That was highly appreciate by Arlington house Tralee as well. 


Our children - Our Future

Children has been an integral part of our society and family make up. KIOS emphasise immensely on the children nurturing and well-being in the society. It ranges from their physical health to mental health. KIOS does multiple children activities on a weekly basis in order to provide free and safe entertainment to the children and their families.

At KIOS, we believe that a good family make up can be achieved by having happy healthy children. Educating children in a fun manner is important and we achieve it with various methods. Children activities include weekly circle, weekly football, and weekly educational circles. Monthly girls parties & monthly boys play station night has been hugely popular among them. Activities during holidays and festivals has been highly appreciated by the community members.


Respecting the elderly and honouring them are characteristics of healthy society

Caring for the elderly has been integral part of KIOS mission. Providing care, love and kindness to the elderly make society more cooperative and integrating well with mutual support.

KIOS has been involved in elderly care in the community for the past years. Our project for winters was very successful where we provided warm clothes and accessaries in the elderly care centre.

Visiting sick children and bringing smiles on their faces is a very rewarding act. KIOS ethos includes happy children which is our next generation.

It ranges from helping the children through enable Ireland along with many other charity projects including animal welfare, homeless personal, elderly care , women care , refugee care and many more . We firmly believe that charity work and giving charity is not optional but obligatory in order to bring positive change in the society.
