In January 2019 Peter McVerry Trust began working with Cork County Council in order to increase the availability of social housing in the county. Our partnership will focus on housing people imapcted by homelessness in county cork and we will deliver a number of social housing projects in Cork in 2019 as we begin to ramp up our housing delivery in the area.
In March 2019 Peter McVerry Trust was asked by Cork City Council to partner with them again to work on providing social housing units for people impacted by homelessness. Our work will initially focus on empty homes initiatives in the city. We are also working with Cork County Council to identify empty properties across the broader region. We will be delivering eight properties in East County Cork in 2019.
In September 2020, Peter McVerry Trust delivered its first social housing units in partnership with Kerry County Council, with 15 units in Killarney providing homes for over 30 people in the area – a mixture of singles, couples and families. All our tenants will receive ongoing support from our dedicated Housing With Supports team who are available to them 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
