Kilmantin Hill provides medium support housing for men and women who have experienced homelessness in Wicklow County. Kilmantin Hill is comprised of ten individual units that cater for people whose needs are such that, at least in the short term, they are unable to sustain independent accommodation. It is staffed seven days per week by our team of experienced support workers and trained volunteers.
The project operates a comprehensive key working and case management programme which involves carrying out an assessment of the needs of each individual in order to identify key areas where support is required. Support staff facilitate dedicated programmes that address issues relating to a resident’s lifestyle: health needs; wellbeing; training and education; and other life skills requirements. These include addressing literacy and numeracy issues, entitlements, household budget management, food preparation and diet/nutritional issues. Should the needs of residents change, our staff team will work to refer the resident to more appropriate accommodation.
