Focus Ireland said:
"The situation is worse than ever before under every single category, and getting worse.
"The number of adults, the number of children and the number of families have all increased and reached new record highs.
"This is not evidence of a strategy that is working, it is evidence of a Government which is taking too little action, too slowly. "
