The Department of Housing have said the rate of homelessness across Ireland is stabilising, but have admitted that more needs to be done as numbers still remain high.
According to latest figures published by the Department, homelessness rose by 0.26% from May to June this year.
The figures show that 26 people were made homeless within that people compared to 242 for the same period in 2017.
Speaking about the findings the Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy, said the housing waiting list had dropped by 16%.
He also said that a number of resources will be allocated to tackle the ongoing issue of family homelessness.
Although the figures have been considered somewhat positive in the attempt to tackle the crisis, homeless advocacy groups have once again criticised the Government saying the latest figures are not promising and the current situation is unacceptable.
Although advocacy groups have welcomed the stabilising numbers, they have once again warned that the Government must do more to help the 9,872 people currently declared homeless in Ireland.
