Wicklow Homeless Figures Unchanged In August

26 people accessed emergency accommodation in County Wicklow last month, unchanged from July.

The numbers in Kildare are less than Wicklow and Meath combined.

The three counties make up the mid east region where 46 families including 92 children were homeless in August.

Latest figures from the Department of Housing show there's been an increase in the number of people who are homeless nationwide.

8,212 people were homeless in August, 2,189 of whom were children.

While Dublin accounts for 70 per cent of the homeless population.
