The charity that works with homeless youths said that the vast majority of those it helped were young men but that it has also seen an increase in the number of homeless families and couples.
“The vast majority of people accessing our services continue to be young men aged from 18 to 35″.

The Peter McVerry Trust supported 3,586 people in the Dublin region last year.

“In addition to homelessness the areas that they most frequently required support with were drug use (87 per cent), family (58 per cent) and mental health (49 per cent)”.
