New homeless prevention service in Donegal 10.03.21

NORTH West Simon Community and Donegal County Council recently announced the establishment of a new Homeless Prevention and Place Finder Service, which aims to help people at risk or experiencing homelessness in the county. The new service aims to ensure that households at risk of homelessness throughout the county are supported to find suitable accommodation, have access to housing advice and information, tenancy support and guidance, assistance with housing applications and advocacy support to engage with all relevant state agencies.
The Place Finder service will assist households to secure deposits and advance rental payments, in consultation with the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection or Donegal County Council. Referral to the service is arranged through the Donegal County Council Housing Department located at your nearest local Public Service Centre.
The Donegal HAP Place Finder Service will provide targeted support for households who are finding it difficult to secure HAP tenancies and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

North West Simon Community’s weekly Housing Information Clinic also aims to help people avoid homelessness through access to appropriate information and support. The clinic may be contacted at any time on 074 91 21613 or by email at letterkennyoffice@northwestsimon.ie .
