As the provider of Housing First in the Mid East Region, Peter McVerry Trust are working closely with Kildare County Council, Meath County Council and Wicklow County Council to deliver the Housing First services required in the area.
These services include housing for the most complex and long term cases of homelessness, as well as wraparound services like mental health and addiction support, education, training and employment, with the ultimate objective of helping people live independently in their own home and integrate into their respective communities.
In 2020, with a Year One target of 19 tenancies, Peter McVerry Trust created 18 Housing First tenancies in the Mid East Region and continued to provide pathways out of homelessness for some of society’s most vulnerable people.
We provide social housing and tenancy support through our Housing with Supports team in the Mid-East region.
