We are partnered with:
DUBLIN REGION HOMELESS EXECUTIVE
The Dublin Region Homeless Executive is provided by Dublin City Council as the lead statutory local authority in the response to homelessness in Dublin and adopts a shared service approach across South Dublin County Council, Fingal County Council and Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council.
The current budget for homeless services (2017) is €120 million. All services that we fund have a service level agreement in place. See more here about funding homeless services.
We established the Pathway Accommodation and Support System (PASS), which is an online system that generates vital information in terms of managing access to accommodation. The system provides ‘real-time’ information in terms of homeless presentation and bed occupancy across the Dublin region. We provide the placement service for all persons in emergency accommodation and publish the homeless figures.
We are responsible for providing support and services to the Dublin Joint Homelessness Consultative Forum and the Statutory Management Group. The Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 provides a statutory structure to address the needs of people who are experiencing homelessness. The Act outlines a statutory obligation to have an action plan in place and the formation of a Homelessness Consultative Forum and a Statutory Management Group.
LEOPARDSTOWN PARK HOSPITAL TRUST
The Leopardstown Park Hospital Trust was established in 1917 by Gertrude Dunning who gifted Leopardstown Park, a magnificent country manor set in 100 acres of parkland, to the British Ministry of Pensions. The LPH Trust directly operated the Hospital until 1979, when the Leopardstown Park Hospital (Establishment) Order, 1979 was signed into legislation. This established the Leopardstown Park Hospital Board, who were then licenced by the LPH Trust to:
· conduct and manage the hospital,
· to provide such services and facilities at the hospital as may, from time to time, be approved by the Minister, after consultation with the Board,
· to provide for the maintenance of the hospital.
Veterans and their spouses continue to enjoy priority of admission to residential care facilities, subject to clinical assessment and suitability for medical criteria in place.
