A human rights perspective on the lived experiences of homeless people in Limerick – Garryowen CDP
This study, A human rights perspective on the lived experiences of homeless people in Limerick, was commissioned in late 2019 by a group of Limerick-based community organisations. The lead grant recipient was Garryowen CDP, and the report included input from Community Law & Mediation, NOVAS and Limerick City Partnership, with funding from the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission.
The study looks at homelessness in Limerick from the perspectives of those who are currently homeless or who were previously homeless, and considers ways in which Limerick community organisations could work more collaboratively to address the needs identified in the research. It focuses on homelessness as a breach of human rights and what effect that has on a person`s other rights.
Having considered these factors, the study then sets out a series of small and large-scale recommendations for change, each of which are categorised under the following headings: improving the experience of homeless people; systemic changes and policy changes.
