Housing Agency Seminar "Homelessness: What Should The Future Priorities Be?" - Dublin Castle - 28th November 2017

 

This evening seminar was focused on homelessness in Ireland.

 

Despite substantial increases in funding and the development of services, the number of people experiencing homelessness has risen month-on-month over the last number of years. The number of families experiencing homelessness has risen sharply.

 

The objective of the event was to gather workable ideas on what is needed to make real progress in preventing and reducing homelessness.

Ideas and proposals put forward will be gathered together and submitted to the Minister for consideration.

 

Speakers on the evening included:

 

David Silke, Head of Research The Housing Agency

 

Dr Bernie O'Donoghue Hynes: Head of Research with the Dublin Region Homeless Executive will outline progress to-date in addressing homelessness

 

Professor Eoin O’Sullivan: Trinity College Dublin, will focus on the lessons we can learn from other countries
