Peter McVerry Trust is campaigning for State-led action on empty homes, derelict sites and underused spaces.
We strongly believe that addressing these issues can play a significant role in improving housing availability, housing affordability, and reducing and ultimately eliminating homelessness.
Peter McVerry Trust has brought back over 60 units of accommodation into use and created four Supported Temporary Accommodation services, as well as two family services, from underused space. This work demonstrates the potential to deliver significant quantities of homes and other forms of accommodation needed in Ireland today.
Peter McVerry Trust’s Empty Homes Initiative aims to identify and reuse empty buildings for the purpose of providing social housing to people currently experiencing, or at immediate risk of, homelessness.
As part of this initiative, Peter McVerry Trust would like to speak to the owners of vacant properties who would be interested in selling or leasing their properties.
Peter McVerry Trust is attempting to secure properties under the Repair and Leasing Scheme and Buy and Renew Scheme as part of Rebuilding Ireland.
