QUESTION NO.20

QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

To ask the Chief Executive for a detailed report on the Homeless Crisis in South Dublin County? To include figures and as much detail as possible.

REPLY:

As at the 30th of September there are 415 live cases included on the Homeless Register. This includes 64 families temporarily accommodated at Tallaght Cross.

South Dublin County Council currently have two Hotels in Tallaght at its disposal one of which is fully controlled by the Homeless Services Section. All other Hotel & B&B accommodation is operated through the Central Placement Services and is not in the control of placement of this local authority, and as a result the service can only offer the accommodation that is available on any given day. Kilininney House operated by Peter McVerry Trust on behalf of South Dublin offers 25 beds to single men and 9 step down placements for those moving out of homeless services

All families included on the Homeless Register are notified to the Focus Family HAT (Housing Action Team) who appoint a Case Worker to further assist those families.

SDCC is also working with Focus Ireland on the HAP Preventative Measure to assist and prevent those families at risk from becoming homelessness.

The Council also operates an outreach service and multi-agency approach to address rough sleepers.
