A new report on homelessness has revealed that 400 children are experiencing the problem in Dublin.

The report by the state-run Homeless Agency revealed a decrease in the numbers of young people accessing homeless services and emergency shelters.

But support groups say there has been a rise in hidden and unreported child homelessness and say there is notable Government inaction in this area.

Minister for Housing Noel Ahern says that current strategies to combat homelessness are under review.

“We are working on a new strategy in which all the voluntary bodies and the service providers have been involved. This is very much a collaborative operation,” he said.
