It is critical that people who are rough sleeping in Dublin are encouraged to access homeless services. We want to reduce the number of persons who sleep rough. The longer a person sleeps rough, the greater the risk that they will become trapped on the streets and vulnerable to becoming a victim of crime, developing drug or alcohol problems, or experiencing problems with their health.
Have you seen a person sleeping rough in Dublin?
Once we have been notified, we will contact the Housing First Team, who will then engage with the person, with the goal of moving the person into temporary accommodation through the Dublin City Council Central Placement Service (CPS). Once the person is placed into temporary accommodation, staff will engage with the person to identify the supports they require in order to move them on to long-term housing and independent living.
