In this first podcast of 2024, Rory talks with Louisa Santoro, CEO of Mendicity (Ireland’s oldest charity), about the homelessness crisis affecting people living in Ireland and newly arrived asylum seekers, and the lack of a whole of Government response. They discuss the real causes of homelessness being in the lack of social and affordable housing. They ask why record levels of homelessness are still not treated as an emergency by the Government? They also delve into the mental health impacts of being in homelessness, and the work being done by Mendicity empowering those in homelessness through supporting services and social enterprise.
