Focus Ireland Half-Day Seminar with Prof Dennis Culhane (USA) - ‘Looking Beyond the Homelessness Crisis’

Monday 23rd April 2018

Today, homelessness appears to be on an inexorable rise and every voluntary organisation, state agency, volunteer and policy maker is entirely consumed in responding to some new element of the crisis. But there will come a time when the measures put in place to deliver new affordable housing will begin to match the demand, and the numbers entering homelessness will fall and we will have ‘turned the corner’. Therefore, this initiative – run in collaboration with TCD School of Social Work and Social Policy – will aim to generate more discussion on what lays beyond the current homelessness crisis through lectures and publications over the coming two years.

Prof Dennis Culhane is kicking off this series on Monday 23rd April at 10am in Royal Society of Antiquaries, 63 Merrion Square. For more details or to RSVP, click on the Eventbrite link:

John Murphy who is chair of the Homelessness Inter-Agency Group (HIAG) will provide a response to the presentation by situating the research findings in the Irish context. Dr Helen Johnston from (NESC) will chair the event which will include an open discussion from the floor.

Due to the significant interest in this event, booking is essential!
