The number of elderly people experiencing homelessness in Dublin has increased by 28% in the last 12 months.

“Devastatingly, a record-breaking number of people will spend this Christmas in homelessness. As housing supply remains at an all-time low, these people will have no indication of how many more Christmases will be passed this way. Several more will pass their Christmas at home in fear that it may be their last as the Cost-of-Living crisis pushes more and more people below the breadline.

“We are putting everything we can into moving people out of homelessness and keeping them in their homes where they belong, but we need all the help we can get. Your donation will fund the continuation of our services and serve as a glimmer of hope to the over 6,000 people relying on our help.”
