Description:
Since September 2014 there has been a significant increase in participants presenting to the organisation with acute and immediate needs. These needs manifest as a requirement for shelter, income, food, clothes or a combination of such. Within the social work support service there is a noted spike of participants presenting as homeless. This increase can hardly be surprising in light of the recent findings such as those of Focus Ireland demonstrating that in Dublin, this year alone, between 39 and 45 families per month are presenting as homeless; so far this year that is nearly 400 families. The breakdown of which in terms of adults and children brings a realisation that thousands of men, women and children have become homeless in Dublin this year. This social phenomenon is not isolated to Dublin; figures depict an increase in homelessness nationally, however Dublin is experiencing a particular concentration of this issue.
