This morning and yesterday afternoon.

Dublin city centre.

There’s been an increase in drug relapses and loneliness among homeless people during the pandemic.

A new study from Merchants Quay Ireland’s warned that rough sleepers who are struggling with mental illness and drug use, are suffering as a result of disruption to services because of Covid.

They’ve had reduced access to toilets, been unable to wash and have found the loss of in-person counselling supports difficult.

Inventive M*A*S*H-style fun?
