The Caretakers Project provides a service for young people under the age of 18 who are experiencing homelessness as a result of being unable to access Alternative Care Arrangements. Caretakers Project forms part of the wider Crisis Intervention Service and collaboration between Tusla and several Voluntary Sector Providers.
Our primary aim through this service is to help young people regain stability during this crisis period, move out of homelessness as quickly as possible, and avoid the risk of long-term homelessness. The service provides high-quality accommodation, individualised support, advice, information and referrals to other relevant services. This is achieved in partnership with Tusla and other stakeholders.
