“This time two years ago I was living on the streets. To where I am today – from someone who was using drugs for the past 27 years to being 16 months clean, is massive. It’s a complete 360.”
Our Day Service on Anderson’s Quay is home to a range of services, including a specialist health team, our Rough Sleeper Service, our Youth Homeless Drug Prevention Programme, and our Employment and Training Service.
Our Outreach Team is responsible for the Rough Sleeper Service, which offers people sleeping rough a nourishing breakfast, shower, laundry, access to the health team and advice and referrals to various homeless services through Cork that are appropriate to people’s needs.
The Adult Homeless Multi-Disciplinary Team is a specialist team of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who are experienced in treating the physical and mental health issues associated with homelessness. The team works specifically with people sleeping rough and those staying in emergency accommodation.
Our Youth Homeless Drug Prevention Programme works with 18 to 26 year olds who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who are either at risk of drug use or are active drug users.
Our Employment & Training Team supports people who have often left school early and are long-term unemployed to complete their formal education, retrain and retrun to the workforce.
