(Network Development Manager), from London Hi, in terms of applying to the VRF for help with ID where someone is homeless and needs ID in order to access accommodation, I'm afraid that the VRF can only make payment via BACS or cheque. If it is possible to make a cheque out to the place where you pay for the Irish passport, we may be able to consider this (if we are able to send it to your office first) - however, to discuss this before making your application, please contact the VRF on 0207 766 1125 (12pm-4pm weekdays).
(Support worker), from Peterborough Thank you very much for your help
