In August 2015, there were a total of 607 families in homeless services in Dublin. This briefing paper provides a careful analysis of the explanation for presentation to Dublin's Homeless Services given by 78 of these families. The most commonly reported cause of homelessness was the forced departure of families from their private rented accommodation.
This ‘tips sheet’ was developed by Crosscare as a quick fire tool for directing those in the homeless sector or within the community coming into contact with people either experiencing homelessness, at risk of homelessness or who might need direction to or assistance with accessing supports appropriate to their needs. This leaflet was produced & printed with the support of Veritas as part of a corporate social responsibility project.
There are currently 556 families who are homeless in the Dublin Region. 361 families with 768 children are in hotels and 195 families with 417 children are in homeless accommodation.
This report builds on two previous reports on the operation of bed and breakfast, commissioned by the Homeless Agency. These are Review of Practices and Procedures currently used in B&B (2002) and Background Paper on Social Welfare Assistance with Payments for Emergency Accommodation (2001). These reports examined respectively, the placement, assessment and support services for people in bed and breakfast and fairness of the present system whereby people in bed and breakfast accommodation make no payment for accommodation or services received.
The project’s objective is to assess the potential for increased referrals of couples and families living in private emergency accommodation (PEA) to Threshold’s Access Housing Unit (AHU) for setting up tenancies in the private rented sector (PRS).
A feasibility study on the provision of accommodation for homeless street drinkers in Dublin. In September 1999, a report was published by Centrecare on street drinkers in Dublin city. This highlighted many of the needs of street drinkers and a wet hostel, which would be targeted specifically towards street drinkers was recommended, among other measures, as a means of addressing some of
these needs. This feasibility study on setting up such a hostel aims to provide a detailed operational plan for such a service. Key issues of this study include the target group of the hostel, hostel facilities, rent levels, capital and ongoing costs, staff, move on options and policy within the hostel relating to alcohol
