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.
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.
Barrow Place is located Carlow Town.
We work with other closely with the HSE, Carlow Co. Council, Ardu Substance Misuse Service, FEAD, FoodCloud.
Barrow Place accepts referrals from Carlow County Council.
