High Support Accommodation

Our Sean MacDermott Street High Support Housing provides long-term accommodation to men and women who are long-term homeless, and who through assessment, have been deemed ‘unable to live independently’.
Sean MacDermott has 24-hour staff on-site seven days a week and has 21 residents whose average average age is 49. Residents have high mental health, physical health, drug and/or alcohol support needs. The service focuses on ending the cycle of homelessness and residents have 24-hour access to the house.

For many it can be the first place they have had to call home after years spent sleeping rough or moving from hostel to hostel. By providing a stable environment many residents naturally reduce their alcohol and drug use and, by eating regular meals and getting regular sleep, many residents experience an improvement in their physical and mental health. Staff work closely with GPs, PHNs, occupational therapists and many more community professionals to improve the quality of life for residents.
