Family homelessness back to peak levels , says Galway Simon

Thu, Aug 04, 2022

The number of families living in emergency accommodation in the West is almost back to the peak levels as a result of the ongoing housing crisis, according to Galway Simon.

There were 88 families living in emergency accommodation across Galway, Mayo and Roscommon in June, just one below the peak number in September 2019.

Homeless charity Galway Simon Community has highlighted concerns with regard to the number of families in emergency accommodation as the latest figures are released by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.
