“At Depaul we aim to be respectful and inclusive in our services and offer care and support to people who have experienced times of isolation and have been turned away many times.”
The first of its kind in Ireland, Sundial House was opened in September 2008. It is a long-term housing project operating in Dublin which provides low threshold housing for people who have experienced extended periods of street homelessness and have entrenched alcohol use issues. Sundial House offers a holistic harm reduction response for each resident based on the principles of alcohol management. The project has been purpose-built to ensure high quality accommodation.
This service is managed by Depaul in partnership with Túath Housing.
The service accommodates 30 people, men and women, single people and couples in en-suite accommodation. There are both single and twin rooms (27 long-term beds and 3 rooms with enhanced care facilities). The project is staffed on a 24/7 basis, with meals provided and there are laundry facilities and onsite nursing support.
A key worker is appointed to all residents to ensure they can access the services they require and receive the appropriate support to address their health related issues.
Sundial House provides warm, homely and long-term accommodation for people with complex support needs, providing them with the help they need to live healthy and positive lives
