Peter McVerry Trust’s Streets to Home team (formerly Outreach team) is based in the Open Access Centre.
The already established Open Access Centre is a drop-in centre, based in Sherrard Street. It is the first point of contact for many homeless young people with the Peter McVerry Trust. It is run by Fr Peter McVerry and also houses his office.
This service offers advice and help with accommodation, legal issues and other needs. This service provides intensive support to those with complex low threshold needs to access and sustain accommodation in line with the Homeless Agency’s ‘housing with supports’ strategy.
The service operates Monday-Friday 9.30am-5pm, with more targeted supports offered to housed participants between 12noon-8pm.
