(18 Sep 2015)

Press Release

The charity helped over 11,500 people who were homeless or at risk of losing their homes last year compared to 10,000 in 2013 and 8,000 in 2012. 

The annual report was launched at Buswells Hotel in Dublin by Focus Ireland Life President, Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy who founded the charity 30 years ago this month.

Focus Ireland CEO Ashley Balbirnie said: “There has been a constant rise in demand in recent years with a staggering 44% increase in the numbers Focus Ireland worked with between 2012 and last year.  This trend is continuing this year as our services have already supported over 8,000 people in the first 6 months around the country."

Also speaking at the event Sr. Stan said that while good work is being done sadly things are getting worse.  She said: “ Last year Focus Ireland helped 360 households to secure a home – or prevented them from losing one and this is really positive. However, at the same time we must not shy away from highlighting that homelessness has now deepened from a crisis situation to a national emergency.”
