Homeless Services in the Republic of Ireland

There are more than 10,000 homeless people in Ireland, the majority are single adults but there has been an increasing number of families presenting as homelessness in recent months. Breaking the cycle of homelessness is difficult and we constantly seek innovative ways to address this and support people in changing their lives. With more than eighty Lifehouses across the UK and Republic of Ireland Territory, the Homelessness Services Unit provides a wide range of services to a variety of people.
