Homelessness in Cork

Our Outreach Team met 97 people sleeping rough on the streets of Cork for at least one night in May 2016. An average of almost 13 people per night were sleeping rough. Between January and May 2016 our Outreach Team supported 231 people sleeping rough for at least one night – a 26% increase compared to the same five-month period in 2015, and a 78% increase compared to January to May 2014. People Deserve Better.

What We Do

From street to home, Cork Simon Community stays with people for as long as they need us.  Our Homeless Emergency Support Services work with people one-to-one, responding to all of their needs with the aim of housing people as quickly as possible. Our Housing and Support Services work with people to maintain their tenancies in housing appropriate to their needs, and to support them to reconnect with family and the wider community.
