Dublin City Council, as the lead statutory authority in the Dublin Region, in partnership with the Dublin Region Homeless Executive, will be opening new family accommodation hubs across the Dublin Region to support the families who are currently in commercial hotels

We are committed to ensuring that emergency accommodation, with facilities suitable to the needs of families with dependent children, which do not exist in commercial hotels, is provided for families.

Dublin's local authorities are now developing co-living accommodation for families who are homeless in order to subsititute the use of commercial hotels.  The new high quality standard family hubs will have the capacity to provide play space, cooking and laundry facilities and communal recreation supports.  There are support services on-site which will assist families to move on to their long-term housing option.
