The Dublin Region Homeless Executive (DRHE) has called for the dissolution of the Inner City Helping Homeless charity following allegations of sexual abuse against its late founder Anthony Flynn (above)
Via RTÉ News:
In a statement, the DRHE called for more vetting for those working unofficially with the homeless.
“The DRHE is strongly of the view that greater regulation, vetting, and scrutiny is required for organisations/charities that set themselves up as service providers for homeless persons, including the provision of on-street food services.
“Several such organisations not funded by the DRHE have come into existence in recent years and the DRHE and our partner agencies will be endeavouring in the coming months to bring the necessary expanded scrutiny and regulation to all such organisations.”
The statement added that the Inner City Helping Homeless charity was not funded by the DRHE.
Inner City Helping Homeless gave two weeks’ notice on Monday to the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement and the Charities Regulator that it intended to ask the High Court to appoint an inspector.
It is understood that there is at least €750,000 in bank accounts connected to the charity.
