Amber Kilkenny Women's Refuge will provide a monthly outreach service at Forward Steps Resource Centre, Tullow commencing Wednesday, January 9 from 10.30am to 12.30pm on a drop in basis.

The outreach service will continue on the first Wednesday of every month (10.30am to 12.30pm), again on a drop in basis.

It comes after a recent report found that Carlow women and children fleeing violent homes are accommodated in refuges in Kildare and Dublin, and that "some end up on the streets of Dublin".

"Homelessness in Carlow 2018" was commissioned by the Carlow County Development Partnership and written by Dr Brendan O'Keeffe.

Homeless campaigner Peter McVerry says the lack of a women's refuge in Carlow is "scandalous".

Amber Women's Refuge offer professional, discreet and supportive help to women and children.
