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.

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 a view to housing them as quickly as possible. Our Housing Support Services work with people to maintain their tenancies in housing appropriate to their needs and to support them to reconnect with the wider community.

"I’ve lived in squats. You just find a place – you know where they are. Anywhere to have a roof and be out of the cold – out of the winter. I’ve slept on the streets hail, rain or snow and I’ve survived it. You feel so lonesome. Tears come to my eyes sometimes. It’s not nice being homeless."
