Welcome to My Streets Ireland
My Streets Ireland empowers individuals who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of 'their' town through the provision of necessary training and support.
The unique tours provide a mixture of local history and personal insight from a guide who has experienced the streets of their town first hand, making for an informative and entertaining experience suitable for all interests and ages.
My Streets offers benefits to all involved ; the tour guides who receives professional training, support and earning potential, the local town which has its underappreciated gems revealed and the tourists who receive an informative, insightful tour.
As well as serving as a self sustaining social enterprise that provides a voice directly to homeless people the 'My Streets' model moves beyond restrictive narratives around homelessness and helplessness and provides a constructive interface between the general public and people who have experienced homelessness, thus giving a human reality to an all too often oversimplified issue.
