An Post has teamed up with charities and service providers to launch Address Point, a free personal postal address and letter collection service for people who are homeless or living in temporary accommodation.

Whether it’s trying to arrange medical appointments, dealing with children’s schools, applying for jobs, or trying to keep in touch with family and friends, Address Point is a practical, simple service which generates a personal address based on the person’s choice of local post office, which will be their mail collection point.

In conjunction with service providers and charities working in the area of homelessness, an instant address is generated online using a mobile phone or laptop, for use on all correspondence. Letters can then be collected by the customer on production of photo ID at the post office of choice. Should a person move to a different area, a new address can be generated, linked to a post office in the new location.
