National Simon Week 2018
October 1 @ 9:00 am - October 7 @ 6:00 pm
This is our annual awareness campaign which is in its eleventh year. This year there will be events and activities taking place all around the country at a local, regional and national level which aim to raise awareness of homelessness and the people that we support all around the country.
The Simon Communities in Ireland have launched a campaign demanding the Government build more social and affordable housing so that no one is left behind. The homeless and housing organisation said that too many people are being impacted and traumatised by experiences of homelessness and that all elements of Ireland’s housing sector show signs of being broken. The Simon Communities also launched their Pre Budget Submission 2018 laying out what the Government must do immediately to stem the tide of people becoming homeless and experiencing housing instability.
