What Should the Future Priorities be?"


This evening seminar will focus on homelessness in Ireland.

Despite substantial increases in funding and the development of services, the number of people experiencing homelessness has risen month-on-month over the last number of years. The number of families experiencing homelessness has risen sharply.

The objective of the event is to gather workable ideas on what is needed to make real progress in preventing and reducing homelessness.

Ideas and proposals put forward will be gathered together and submitted to the Minister for consideration.
