Midlands Homelessness Figures Remain Over 100

The highest figure ever was recorded last month.

There's a record number of people in homeless accommodation for the second month in a row.

State figures show there are 10,805 people living in B&Bs and hotels nationally.

111 people are homeless in the midlands.

Department of Housing figures show a slight decrease of two on last month's numbers, which were the highest on record.

50 people accessed emergency accommodation in Westmeath, which is the most in the region.

There's 41 people without permanent accommodation in Offaly, and 22 in Laois.

The total from the Department of Housing does not include rough sleepers, women in refuge centres, those in Direct Provision or Ukrainian refugees.
