History:

Barrow Place was first opened in Carlow Town as a Monastery Hostel. The service was transferred to Depaul’s care by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in September 2021.

What we do:

Barrow Place is a low threshold, short-term accommodation facility with 9 self-catering apartments to support men, women and couples who are experiencing homelessness. Some of our residents may become homeless as a result of mental health issues and/or addiction, relationship breakdown, release from prison or as a result of changes to their financial circumstances. Our residents have their own apartment key and are encouraged to be independent. Each individual is linked with a key worker on entry to the service who will establish specific needs and work towards a person-centred support plan to help individuals reach their full potential.

One of the key aims of Barrow Place is to provide a homely environment for each resident. Very often this is the first stable place that they can call home in a very long time. Our team works with residents on a one to one basis to implement their care plan. Their key-worker will make referrals appropriate to meet our residents needs such as substance misuse, mental health and housing schemes both with and without follow on supports.

Where we operate:

Barrow Place is located Carlow Town.

Partners:
