Dublin Simon Community highlights doubling of homeless families in a year

One hundred and 20 people slept rough on the streets of Dublin last night, according to the Dublin Simon Community who today launched their annual review.

The review found the number of children in emergency accommodation is in Dublin is up 99% from last year.

The number of families sleeping rough in Dublin is up 106% since last year.

The homeless charity has laid bare what it called the humanitarian crisis of homelessness with nearly 2,300 people in emergency accommodation in the capital.

Accusing the Government of doing too little, too slowly, the Dublin Simon Community released a series of damning figures on families, children and single people who are unable to find a roof over their head.

The long-term homeless figure has grown by 53% in a year.

And Dublin Simon said there are now 1,275 children and 607 families without a home in the capital alone.
