Cork Simon seek vacant homes from landlords and property owners

They're asking landlords with empty homes for rent or purchase to contact them through their Empty Homes campaign.

Cork Simon is adopting a pro-active approach at tackling the lack of suitable accommodation to help with their response to the housing and homeless crisis 

The 2016 Census shows that there are nearly 20,000 vacant properties in the city and county and through this campaign Cork Simon wants to tap into existing Government funding schemes to purchase or lease these properties.

Speaking to RedFM News Sophie Johnston of Cork Simon is appealing to property owners and landlords to contact them.
