Journalist, broadcaster, author and Irish Examiner columnist, Alison O'Connor is leading our series of four discussions on The Road Home - Ending Long-Term Homelessness Together.

The third in our series explored how we’re addressing many of the issues unique to long-term homelessness, the positive impact that’s having on people’s lives, and how we can work together to make it a reality for many more. Alison was joined by our CEO, Dermot Kavanagh; Colette O'Brien who leads our specialist housing and support services; and Dr. Austin O'Carroll, a GP with a deep interest in health inequalities. He founded SafetyNet, an umbrella organisation for primary care services in Cork, Limerick and Dublin, specialising in health care for people experiencing homelessness.
