028 9024 5640: Housing & Debt Helpline for Northern Ireland

November 2013

People who become homeless are facing major problems finding affordable rented accommodation due to housing shortages. Local advice charity Housing Rights Service (HRS) set up almost 50 years ago, says more could be done to prevent homelessness occurring in the first place. The charity is highlighting the issue as part of Homelessness Awareness Week.

On the day when the Northern Ireland Court Service released figures showing a 20% increase in the number of possession orders granted, local advice charity Housing Rights Service says it’s concerned about the delay in setting up a Government task force to tackle the problem.
