Covid-19 (Drug and Alcohol Services, and Homelessness): Statements
Frank Feighan (Sligo-Leitrim, Fine Gael)
I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. I have met many of the stakeholders. It is not rhetoric. I am informed that in 2020, some 1,006 single persons exited emergency accommodation into homes in the Dublin region. A lot of work has been done regarding rough sleeping and long-term users of emergency accommodation. It is not perfect but much good work has been done and we are putting a lot of resources into achieving it.
