Key Steps to take if you are Homeless

Register with your local authority

If you are resident in Galway and are currently homeless, you will need to first register as homeless with the housing department of your local authority. You need to have registered with your local council to be eligible for available homeless services and support.

If it is outside of their office hours (in the evening time, at the weekend or on a public holiday) you can make contact one of the COPE Galway Emergency Accommodation Services.

Contact the COPE Galway Day Centre

After you have registered with your local housing authority, contact the COPE Galway Teach Corrib Day Centre.
The Day Centre offers a holistic range of support services. These include homeless prevention, emergency accommodation, support with accessing your entitlements, finding new accommodation, health services, and a range of other supports based your specific needs.
