CEO and Management team are professional but lost vision and mission of charity
Have lost their effectiveness to help residents through too many layers of governance, property development and social correctness

The grass roots elements rough sleeper team and mobile medical service are excellent
Pros
Rough sleeper team
Cons
Ceo & Senior Management Team

Micro management getting in the way always
Very stressful and sometimes dangerous environment . Management paper pushing and never there to do the dirty work. Full time volunteers deserve so much credit for their work

they ask for duty of care but they don´t care about their employees
I´ve never felt that bad working for anyone. They don´t care about their employees, they are just focused on the outcomes of the company and the move ons. i wouldn´t recommend it to anybody

Dublin life
I was assigned to a Dublin Simon Community service called Riversdale House, which is long term residential house, I am mainly responsible for supporting and linking with our residents with their daily lives and prompting them with group activities and social events;
Organising social activities and events for residents is a part of work, the main purpose is to encourage and increase participation in order to enrich daily lives;

As a foreigner, the most enjoyable part of my job is experiencing totally Irish working environment and my kind Irish coworkers.

Dublin Simon Community
Some of the most challenging and uplifting work I have experienced is my continued voluntary work with the Dublin Simon Community in supporting individuals who are homeless and living in supported temporary accommodation. We as an organisation experience a wide variety of issues including addiction, abuse, mental health difficulties and family discord. This experience of supporting the immediate needs of the individuals at hand and working as part of a comprehensive team to help clients achieve a better standard of living, has ignited a passion within me, to continually help and support people with complex needs. This experience both educated me on the current political climate of the homeless crisis, and on how to interact and engage with service users.
