Dublin Outreach is an assertive street outreach service provided by Dublin Simon Community in partnership with the Dublin Region Homeless Executive. This service engages with adults who experience rough sleeping, supports them into temporary homeless accommodation, and makes appropriate referrals to permanent housing options especially Housing First. The service also ensures that people experiencing rough sleeping are linked with other appropriate housing and health services to prevent further rough sleeping.
