Motion in the name of Cllr Sophie Nicoullaud

That this housing committee supports the request from local social workers among other members of the community to add more 2 beds in the Emmet Road Project by turning all paired studios into 2 bed units.


 While it is recognised that single persons represent the highest number of people on the DCC housing waiting list, we also recognise that nationwide, Focus Ireland gives the number of a record total of 4170 children  in state emergency homeless accommodation (it doesn't include children who are in ‘own-door’ temporary accommodation, domestic violence refuges, asylum seekers, people who are sleeping rough, and the very many who are ‘hidden homeless’ and staying with family or friends in insecure housing.)

 Social workers in the Emmet Road  deal every day with residents and have done so for decades, are crying out for more family housing units because they see first-hand the impact "hidden homelessness” has on children and their families. 

We know that children are the most vulnerable in homeless situation and they are the most affected by it. The impact it has on them is life long and it puts them more at risk when they become adults to end up homeless as well.
