Dublin services

Housing

Peter McVerry Trust has 250 units in Dublin. Occupants of these homes receive assistance to sustain their tenancies through our Housing with Support team. We also provide support to hundreds of tenants who have progressed to private rented or local authority housing from our services.

We work in partnership with the Housing Agency and the four local authorities in Dublin to deliver housing solutions.

Housing First

As an early adopter and major supporter of the concept, we have been working on the Housing First model since 2011 in Dublin. Peter McVerry Trust continues to seek ways to expand and improve the delivery of Housing First in Ireland. We work with the Dublin Region Homeless Executive to deliver our Housing First work across Dublin. Learn more here.

Homeless services

Peter McVerry Trust has been providing emergency homeless accommodation in Dublin since 1983.

The majority of our homeless services in Dublin provide accommodation to single people but we also work with couples and families with children.

During winter 2018/19, Peter McVerry Trust added over 200 emergency accommodation beds in Dublin, spread across the four Dublin local authorities (Dublin City Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Fingal County Council, and South Dublin County Council).

As of February 2019, Peter McVerry Trust operates 31 services in Dublin accommodating 857 people.

We work with the Dublin Region Homeless Executive, and the four local authorities in Dublin, to deliver our homeless services.

U18 services

Peter McVerry Trust currently provides Under 18s Residential Services for up to 18 young persons across four locations in the Dublin area.

The Registration and Inspection Service with the Child and Family Agency is a national service with the responsibility to inspect and register non-statutory children’s residential centres. Each service is registered and inspected by Tusla Registration and Inspection Services.  The services currently provided by Peter McVerry Trust are as follows:

  • Balcurris
  • Tabor
  • Belvedere
  • Maysal Lodge

Drug Treatment and Stabilisation

We offer pragmatic, dignified responses to the needs of people who are engaging in drug misuse.  At present Peter McVerry Trust’s Drug Treatment Services include a Drug Stabilisation and Recovery Service, a Residential Community Detox Service and Residential Drug-Free Aftercare Accommodation Service.

These are all Dublin based, but the Residential Community Detox is a national centre and works with people from across Ireland. Learn more here.

In the video below, Niall talks about his experience in our detox facility and his subsequent tenancy in our drug-free housing.

Information and advice

Peter McVerry Trust’s Information and Advice Centre is located in Dublin City Centre. The service provides offers information and advice to persons at risk of becoming homeless. The service is located at 12/13 Berkeley Street, Dublin 7.

Homeless Youth Café

In October 2015, Peter McVerry Trust opened Ireland’s only dedicated youth cafe for young people in homelessness. The cafe operates day time and evening opening hours for people in or at risk of homelessness. The service provides a welcoming and positive space for people to access food, IT, laundry, storage and shower facilities as well as receiving support from Peter McVerry Trust staff on site.

These initiatives form part of our prevention work. Learn more here.
