One new person joining homeless list every day in west

Thu, Dec 06, 2018

One new person is becoming homeless every day in the west and is forced to seek emergency accommodation, according to figures that have been described as shocking by Galway Simon Community.

The charity has said that with 458 people in emergency accommodation in the West of Ireland, an increase of 37 people on the previous month, it is shocking that so many families will have to spend Christmas with no home.

The number of families in emergency accommodation has increased by 57 per cent compared to the same period last year, with 77 families including 167 children now living in emergency accommodation in the west of Ireland.
