The Skainos Centre
Thursday, February 6, 2020 - 10:00 to 13:00
3.0hrs CPD
As welfare reform and changes to the Social Fund have started to take effect, Housing Rights has found that affordability is consistently one of the top issues encountered by clients. 
Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) has found that people in both the social and private rented sectors are at risk of poverty after their housing costs are met.  This risk is however particularly acute for low income households in the private rented sector who will have higher housing costs. This course will look at sources of financial assistance for clients who are struggling to meet their financial burdens. 

Outcome of course

Those attending will get an overview of the various forms of discretionary support, financial assistance and charitable support that is available.

Who should attend

Anyone who would benefit in increasing their knowledge of financial support available. This course will be of particular interest to people working within the social housing sector, private landlords and agents and advice agencies who regularly deal with housing queries.
