Our Values

Commitment to Care

The Community responds to the changing needs of those who experience homelessness and those at risk of doing so by providing a range of empowering and supportive care for as long as people need it.


Cork Simon is a community of people who have experience of or are at risk of homelessness, and those concerned with ending homelessness, which promotes respect, equality, empowerment, solidarity and participation.


Cork Simon respects the uniqueness of all persons. Collectively we strive to meet the diverse needs and promote the rights of all individuals and groups affected by homelessness.


The Community strives to be accessible and inclusive, with a special commitment to those facing the most barriers.


Both volunteers and paid staff are central to the work of Cork Simon. The time and resources of volunteers is a unique dimension of the Community.

Social Justice

As a Community, we promote a socially just society and campaign for a society without homelessness.
