If you are homeless you can call Freephone 1800 724 724 for advice, information and access to emergency accommodation as appropriate.

Young and Homeless

If you are under 18 the responsibility for finding you accommodation resides with each Health Services Executive Area (HSE). So if you find yourself homelessness, go to your local health centre or local Garda Station.

If after hours (i.e. the health centre is closed), go to the local Garda Station and the Gardaí will contact the on-duty social worker for the HSE Area so that emergency accommodation can be arranged.
