RTÉ provided three families with cameras to film their experience of being homeless over a three month period in the final months of 2015. The resulting programme is to be aired tomorrow night on RTE One after the 9 O'Clock tomorrow night.
"The number of homeless families almost doubled in the past year. By December 2015, over 700 families - with almost 1500 children - were without a home. Many of these families have been forced to live in emergency accommodation - usually a hotel or B&B room - where they eat, sleep, and live their lives. While other families, not registered as homeless, live with friends or family as part of an increasing number of people 'sofa surfing' to keep a roof over their heads."
RTE describe this programme as a vivid depiction of what it's like to be part of a family in homelessness, seeing up close "the emotional and psychological effects of living in emergency accommodation".
