About The Salvation Army - Granby Lifehouse
The Salvation Army's Granby Lifehouse is more than a hostel or shelter for the night. At a Lifehouse we get people their life back. We provide housing for individuals who have been socially excluded. The Salvation Army has a long history of working with people who are vulnerable and marginalised in every community.
Do you enjoy going to the cinema or theatre? Would you be interested in accompanying someone who enjoys the same? If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
We are looking for someone to accompany a man aged 68 on occasional trips to the cinema or theatre in Dublin City.
Your involvement will not only support this man to achieve his personal goals and widen his social network, but will also provide you with the opportunity to create a new friendship with someone who is social and loves to chat.
More about Us
The Salvation Army in Dublin has four lifehouses offering practical support to men and women of all ages.
There are more than 7000 homeless people in Ireland, the majority are single adults but there has been an increasing number of families presenting as homelessness in recent months.
