Homelessness in Cork

Our Outreach Team met 72 people sleeping rough on the streets of Cork in March 2015 – an increase of 16% compared to February, and twice as many people sleeping rough compared to a year ago.  We recorded an average of 10 people per night sleeping rough in March 2015 compared to an average of 6 people per night a year ago.  We met 16 people surviving in squats and another 27 people who had no choice but to stay with friends.
