How can we help?
We can directly provide accommodation for homeless people, make arrangements with voluntary organisations for accommodation, provide financial or other assistance and if necessary, arrange private accommodation.
Homeless people in need of permanent housing can apply for a tenancy. If eligible they will be placed on the waiting list. The length of time waiting for a tenancy to be allocated will depend on the demand for housing in the area and their individual circumstances on the waiting list.
Bed and breakfastBed and breakfast accommodation may be provided where the accommodation needs of a homeless person or family are immediate and acute and no suitable hostel accommodation is available.
Private rented accommodation may be an appropriate option for some homeless people. Part of the rent may be met under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance Scheme. Decisions in relation to rent assistance rest with the Health Service Executive (HSE).
