Tus Nua is a specialised service supporting women who are homeless upon their release from prison or women with an offending background who are homeless in the community. It provides a 6 month residential programme, delivering specialised mentoring, support and interventions in the Dublin area. Tus Nua aims to prevent the risk of re-offending by supporting women to recognise their short-term and long-term needs. The support offered also includes learning life skills and identifying opportunities, to assist the women living in Tus Nua to manage independently.
The service is managed by Depaul who works in close partnership with the Dóchas Women’s prison and the Probation Service.
