Submission on the implementation of national homeless strategy The Way Home (2008-2013) and on realising the 2010 Vision of the Homeless Agency Partnership’s Action Plan on Homelessness in Dublin A Key to the Door (2007-2010).

The vision that by end of 2010, long-term homelessness and the need to sleep rough will be eliminated in Dublin and the agreed actions set out in A Key to the Door are underpinned by three strategic aims which relate to the prevention of homelessness, the provision of effective services in each of the four Dublin local authority areas, and the provision of sufficient long-term housing, with appropriate supports as required.

Following a progress review (which was carried out in late 2007, the first full year of implementing A Key to the Door), the Board of the Homeless Agency Partnership agreed three critical priority actions for 2008. These actions, which are specifically designed to ensure that the momentum gained in achieving the Partnership’s strategic vision is maintained, were as follows:
• Measure and evidence the extent of need and projected requirements
• Develop and agree a model of service delivery for the homeless sector in Dublin
• Review current expenditure on homeless services and develop and propose a capital and revenue funding mechanism to be agreed as part of a revised funding regime.
