Everyone can help fight homelessness
Cork is playing its part
Homelessness in Cork

The housing crisis is pushing people into homelessness and preventing people from leaving homelessness. Our Emergency Shelter is overflowing with an average of 53 people per night relying on a Cork Simon emergency bed. People are staying for longer and longer in emergency accommodation because they have no other options. Rents in Cork City increased 12% last year; Rent Supplement and Housing Assistance Payments do not come near asking rents.

Emergency Shelter

Our Emergency Shelter is located on Anderson’s Quay, in the heart of Cork city centre. The Shelter provides care, accommodation and one-to-one support for 47 people around-the-clock, every day of the year. Demand for emergency beds is high – Throughout 2016 the Shelter accommodated an average of 54 people per night – the need for emergency accommodation is so great that we try to accommodate as many people as is safe to do so.

Want to get Involved?
No One Should Be Left Behind – we need to act now.

People are struggling to find homes and to stay in the homes that they already have.

Over 8,000 people remain trapped in emergency accommodation in Ireland. Many thousands more are hidden homeless and at risk of homelessness.

People urgently need safe, secure, affordable housing and support, for those who need it, to remain in that housing.

Please add your voice to theirs. Demand the Government build more social and affordable housing. Sign our PETITION.

Thank You.
