ICHH Website - Organisation Currently In Liquidation

Kieran Wallace was appointed provisional liquidator by Order of the High Court perfected on 07 October 2021 and subsequently appointed liquidator by Order of the High Court perfected on 01 November 2021.


Unfortunately, due to the appointment of the liquidator, Charity services provided will be ceased as of 15 November 2021.


The liquidator has engaged with Dublin Regional Homeless Executive (“DRHE”) to ensure a smooth transition of services from the Charity to other suitable service providers in the local area. Together with DHRE, the liquidator has mapped the services provided to alternative service providers (outlined below), ensuring no service user has been disadvantaged as a result of the liquidator’s appointment.

Post-Cessation Service Offering


  • The Dublin Simon Community Outreach team is a nightly service carried out by trained, vetted staff between 7am and 1am Mon – Fri and 9am – 1am Saturday and Sunday.
  • The current ICHH route map has been mapped to the Dublin Simon Outreach route map to ensure there are no gaps. Any high priority clients identified by ICHH are already visited daily by the Dublin Simon Outreach team but this can be discussed in detail during the handover. The DRHE will provide additional resources the Outreach team, as required, for a period of six months to ensure the current frequency of client visits is maintained.
  • In addition to distributing hot drinks, food, clothing etc, the Dublin Simon Outreach service engages with adults who are rough sleeping, supports them into short term homeless accommodation, and makes appropriate referrals to permanent housing options. The service also ensures that people experiencing rough sleeping are linked with other appropriate housing and health services to prevent further rough sleeping.
  • The Outreach Mobile Health Clinic, operated by Safetynet and funded by the HSE, delivers services three nights a week together with the Dublin Outreach team & the Housing First Intake team, to support rough sleepers with complex medical needs. This Outreach clinic offers a comprehensive primary health care service targeted at people who are experiencing homelessness in Dublin.
  • The Housing First Intake team meets with chronic rough sleepers to engage directly into housing with open-ended supports by a multi-disciplinary team.
  • The number of interactions with anyone rough sleeping are recorded on the integrated bed and case management database used by all funded homeless services. Outreach teams report on interactions and outcomes as part of a Service Level Agreement between the Dublin Region Homeless Executive and Dublin Simon.

An Outreach handover meeting will be scheduled between ICHH and the Dublin Simon Community during the week beginning 8th November 2021.
