Cork Simon Struggling To Maintain Services At Day Centre
Cork Simon says they are working with a Day Service that is now too small for demand.
It comes as the homeless charity has reported a significant increase in service users over the past year at their Day Service on Andersons Quay.
Services include a specialist health team, Simon's Rough Sleeper Service, A Youth Homeless Drug Prevention Programme, and an Employment and Training Service.
A new report commissioned by the charity ahead of the winter season has highlighted the need for a much larger site at Andersons Quay to facilitate all the activities that currently operate from there.
Speaking to RedFM News Dr Sharon Lambert who published the report says the Day centre is invaluable to homeless people in Cork:
