Safe Home Ireland is an Irish emigrant support service that provides a range of services to more than 2,000 people each year. 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 Chairperson, Dr. Jerry Cowley.
Over the years, Safe Home has evolved from simply providing a housing option for older Irish born emigrants. Our work is now spread across the 26 counties and we provide supports to our applicants at every stage of their journey from the initial enquiry abroad to actual return home.
