Homeless numbers rose to 10,275 in July.

That's 103 more than the previous month, according to the latest figures from the Department of Housing.

The number of children accessing emergency accommodation increased by 103 when compared with June's figures.

It means that 3,778 children are now homeless.

Depaul CEO David Carrol commented on the figures, saying “Starting a new school term is daunting enough for children without the added stresses and stigma that comes with being homeless. We need to offer children every chance to excel within their education and residing in hotels and B&Bs can, and will, severely hinder their prospects within education and further into their lives.”

Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy says the government is doing everything it can to get people out of homelessness, but it remains a huge challenge.
