Discarded and Ignored. Where is the Vision to End Homelessness in Ireland?
This Housing Shock episode talks to Louisa Santoro, CEO of Mendicity, Ireland’s oldest working charity in Dublin which provides supports to, and works with, those who are homeless. Louisa talks passionately and from experience about the reality of homelessness in Dublin today, about the problems with the private for profit model of homelessness accommodation, the recent rise in deaths amongst those homeless, the need to recognise with respect and dignity each homeless person, to provide proper services, and not discard them, and the solution in building social housing on a massive scale. We also discuss the role of civil society – the public in changing the policy and demanding real solutions.
