Safe Home Ireland is an Irish emigrant support service that provides a range of services for returning and returned Irish emigrants. We provide an advice and information service, undertake outreach visits and provide housing assistance to eligible applicants.
Safe Home Ireland was established in the year 2000 to assist older qualifying Irish born emigrants to explore the option of returning to live in their native areas. The organisation was set up as a Pilot Project by a local GP and our current Life President, Dr. Jerry Cowley.
Thanks to you all at the Safe Home office and to Brenda for coming all the way down to Cork to help my brother, Pat, with all the important documentation. He is so happy to be home again. Without Safe Home, he would still be here in London, dreaming of life in Cork, so for all of that, I can’t thank you enough.
Coming back to Ireland is what I’ve always wanted. It’s where my heart is and Safe Home were the people to help me do this
Thanks to the Safe Home team for all the help you have given us to start a new life back home in Ireland surrounded by all the new friends and more importantly to be surrounded by our whole family at Christmas for the first time in more than twenty years
