Cork Homeless Forum
Cork's Homeless Forum was formalised as a result of the Government’s Integrated Strategy for Homelessness which was published in 2000.
The Forum was set up in 1993 and has the following mission statement: “Through commitment, partnership and action we will respond effectively to the diverse needs of homeless people in Cork.”
The primary role of the Forum is to act as an advisory committee to the statutory and voluntary groups working in the homeless sector.
The Forum is chaired by Cork City Council and the representatives are:
- Cork City VEC
- Cork County Council
- Cork Simon Community
- Cuanlee Refuge
- Good Shepherd Services
- Health Service Executive
- Society of St Vincent de Paul
