Galway Simon Community

Galway Simon Community was set up in 1979 by a group of volunteers who refused to accept homelessness on the streets of Galway. With the support of the wider community, we have grown, developed, learned and adapted over the years to become a leading provider of homeless and homelessness prevention services in the region.

At Galway Simon Community, we support a person's right to security, dignity and well-being in their own home. We are relentlessly committed to finding answers to the questions faced by real people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness. It is our belief that early intervention is the most effective means of reducing the trauma and cost associated with homelessness.

We work with a clear vision in mind: a community where everyone has a place to call home.  

 

 

 

overview

 

Galway Simon Community supports a person’s right to security, dignity and wellbeing in their own home. Our services focus on three key areas; homelessness prevention, housing and health & wellbeing:

 

  • Our Homelessness Prevention Services support those within the community to prevent them from becoming homeless in the first place. These services work to keep people in their own homes or when this is not possible, they help to resettle them to a new home.

  • Our Housing Services provide a home for over 100 people at any one time across Galway City and County. These services vary in levels of support from independent living, to shared, transitional or high support housing. The focus within these housing services is to support clients towards independent living where appropriate. 

  • The Health and Well-being team provides specialist support in areas including physical and mental health, addiction, relapse prevention, life skills and access to training, education and employment.
