As part of our outreach work, where feasible, we carry out home visits with Safe Home housing applicants throughout the UK. We meet with them in their own homes, go through the application process with them in detail, answer any questions they may have and assess their situation. Where relevant, we can refer them to local support services in the area to improve their situations (financial/housing/support), as they wait to return home to Ireland.
We can also provide an outreach and advocacy service to people who have returned to Ireland and who may need assistance with applying for benefits and entitlements. We can also refer people to relevant services and support agencies in Ireland that may be of assistance.
