The purpose of this research was to identify why families had recently become homeless in Dublin – from their own perspective.

Data extracted from the Focus Ireland database and the PASS system was used to draw up a representative sample of 30 homeless cases. Most were interviewed in hotels, bed-andbreakfasts and supported temporary accommodation, but some had exited homelessness and were now in permanent local authority or Approved Housing Body (AHB) tenancies. The research examined the circumstances in which they became homeless and their subsequent trajectories.
