Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council is joining with other local authorities to lead a new appeal for offers of unoccupied properties to provide temporary homes for those fleeing war in Ukraine.
More than 60,000 people have arrived in Ireland from Ukraine, and most are in need of safe and secure accommodation. This new call aims to make use of unoccupied houses, apartments or holiday homes to provide much needed accommodation on a temporary basis.
The appeal is for offers of houses, apartments, or holiday homes for use as temporary accommodation for those arriving from Ukraine. Ideally, properties would be available for at least six months. Property owners can offer homes at offerahome.ie or by contacting the local authority in which the property is located.
The local authority in which the property is located will be the point of contact for owners throughout the offer and assessment process. Owners can expect to be contacted by the local authority within 5 working days of making an offer and an assessment of the property will be carried out shortly after. In addition, the person who offers the property will be able to check the status of their offer at any stage through the website. Local authorities will also match suitable properties to Ukrainian beneficiaries and can support in agreeing licence agreement and other arrangements.
Full details of the call for properties are available at offerahome.ie where offers can be made. We are grateful for any support you could offer on this initiative.
