Homelessness in Cork

Our Outreach Team met 86 people sleeping rough on the streets of Cork in April 2016. An average of 9 people per night were sleeping rough. Between January and April 2016 we supported 188 people sleeping rough – a 21% increase compared to the same four-month period in 2015, and an 81% increase compared to the same period in 2014.  Rough Sleeping in Cork has increased nine-fold in the four years since 2011.  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.
