    By admin | January 29, 2007

    The Leeds Irish Health and Homes group has recently published a report on homeless Irish people called “Gan Didean� (“Without a Place to Stay�). The report highlights the importance of cultural awareness in service provision and makes a number of recommendations. These include:
    – Consultation with Irish organisations in the planning stages of initiatives to deal with homelessness.
    – Better ethnic monitoring to provide data for improvements in service provision.
    – The inclusion of Irish ethnicity in diversity-training curricula
    – Action plans by statutory authorities for culturally sensitive services to the Irish community
    – Consultation with Irish organisations by statutory organisations to provide support
    – Provision of culturally specific supported housing and care for Irish people.

    The report also includes an overview of the work of LIHH and several case studies. It is available through LIHH at
