Vacancy and Homelessness

A crisis like the one we are seeing in homelessness requires a crisis response. Action on vacant homes is one of the few areas where the State can instigate that crisis response.

The Simon Communities of Ireland are proposing that the government set a target of 5,000 vacant properties into use in 2023 through the Repair and Lease Scheme (RLS). These homes could be allocated to people in homelessness and on the social housing waiting list – particularly single people.
