About Depaul Ireland:
Depaul Ireland supports people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We are a cross border organisation providing services in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Established in the Republic of Ireland in 2002 and Northern Ireland in 2005, we have over a decade of helping those that need us most in the community and some of our services have been the first of their kind.
Our services can be grouped into 4 areas including: community and outreach, vulnerable families, harm reduction accommodation services and criminal justice and mental health services.
In Depaul Ireland services, we work from low threshold principles- meaning we support people who are often multiply excluded from other services. We operate harm reduction principles in our services and provide almost 350 bed spaces nightly across Dublin, Belfast, Dungannon and Derry/Londonderry. All of our services supported by a quality assessment framework.
We are a values-led organisation. Our mission is “To offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to fulfil their potential and make positive and informed choices about their future”.
Depaul Ireland is part of Depaul International, a group of charities working to support people who are homeless and marginalised around the world - helping over 10,000 people every year.
We share close links with the Society of St Vincent de Paul and other members of the Vincentian family and are a separate charity.
