Homeless Charity Acquires First Ever Clare Homes

The Peter McVerry Trust, a national housing and homeless charity, has begun to deliver social housing in Clare for the first time.

The group is working with Clare County Council, and has already secured accommodation for 13 people in Ennis.


The Peter McVerry Trust has secured the use of six apartments in Ennis, allowing them to move 13 people out of homelessness.

The number is made up of both single individuals and families and the group will continue to provide visits and supports to them.

This is the first investment by the national charity in social housing here, and could be the first of many.

It says it’s now working to identify new social housing opportunities in Clare, and in particular wants to speak with people with vacant homes who may qualify for the Repair and Leasing Scheme, or whose properties could be eligible for the Buy and Renew scheme.

The charity has thanked Clare County Council for its support on the initiative.
