Outreach Services - Kildare, Wicklow and Meath

In each county the Simon Community, through its own funding, has resourced a Homeless Support Service consisting of a Service Manager and Homeless Support Workers based in the locality. The work carried out by the local Homeless Support Service varies from county to county in line with the presenting need and includes some or all of:

  • Outreach support to Rough Sleepers
  • Settlement support to singles, couples and families who are moving out of homelessness.
  • Tenancy sustainment support to singles, couples and families who are at risk of becoming homeless.

We provide a confidential service that is tailored to meet the needs of the individual through the completion of professional assessments and the development of practical support plans that focus on using the support services available in the community.
