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 57 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 13.7% 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 2018 the Shelter accommodated an average of 57 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?
Do You Own An Empty Residential Property?
We are urgently seeking to make contact with owners of vacant residential properties in Cork as part of our response to the housing and homeless crisis.
We are interested in:
  • Buying your empty residential property in need of repair under the Government’s BUY AND RENEW SCHEME.
  • Buying your empty residential property in turnkey or near-turnkey condition.
  • Leasing your empty residential property under our SOCIAL RENTALS SCHEME.

Today is World Homeless Day. Our Outreach Team were again out and about around Cork city this morning; the darkest it’s been for a few months.

We believe that everyone should have fair access to housing and a basic standard of living. But the housing crisis and rental crisis are pushing people into homelessness and preventing people from leaving homelessness behind.

Our Outreach Team works on the street and from our Day Service. Read more: www.corksimon.ie/what-we-do/homeless-emergency-support-services/outreach-team/ #WorldHomelessDay
