A team from Smith & Williamson’s Dublin office volunteered their DIY skills by decorating two rooms at Riverdale House, a local permanent support accommodation for the homeless.

The support accommodation is run by the Dublin Simon Community, a charity offering services and support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Residents are men and women over 55 years old whose needs have deemed them unable to live independently.

The team from Smith & Williamson painted, assembled shelves, installed wall art and built flat pack furniture. Smith & Williamson also agreed to cover more than €1,500 of furnishings and toiletries, including chairs, duvets, pillows, lampshades, wall art, bookshelves and towels.

The renovation work has had a hugely positive impact on the lives of the residents, who spend most of their time within the living space.
