If you need a bed tonight or know someone who is experiencing homelessness or who is at risk of becoming homeless, the first thing you will need to do is get in touch with the relevant Local Authority in order to be eligible for homeless services.
If you require emergency shelter accommodation in Co. Louth the Homeless Office can be contacted on 1890 202 303 or out-of-hours on 087 418 6000.
If you find yourself homeless and are from outside Co. Louth, contact your own Local Authority/Homeless Office for advice. To find the details of your Local Authority you can call the Central Placement Service (CPS) on 1800 707 707 and they will advise you on emergency accommodation options in your county.
In addition to this, we promote a coherent approach to health promotion (e.g. healthy eating, sexual health, and drug awareness) and linking people into treatment programmes, counselling, and group therapies, as appropriate to their needs. The value of this to breaking the cycle of homelessness is in terms of addressing an immediate need, encouraging and enabling people to engage in a more structured way with key services, and helping them maintain a level of coping without which they may become unwell.
