During the current Covid-19 crisis Crosscare, the Social Support Agency of the Archdiocese of Dublin is continuing to deliver its vital services to those who are most in need.

The agency is concentrating its efforts on maintaining full service levels in seven 24 hour residential services for the homeless. They are keeping Community Food Cafés and Community Food Banks operating for all their service users and customers, albeit on a takeaway basis.

While delivering these essential services, keeping service users, staff and volunteers safe is their main priority.

Following HSE and government hygiene and social distancing guidelines, these services will continue to provide accommodation and food where at all possible.

Crosscare’s other services which include, information and advocacy, youth support and counselling are being offered though internet and telephone support where possible at this time.

Conor Hickey, Director of Crosscare, said they have big challenges to face over the coming months but are receiving great support from the statutory services and from the general public. They will release regular updates on their services in the coming days and weeks as they work hard to keep operating.
