Housing Rights is Northern Ireland’s leading independent provider of specialist housing advice. For over 50 years we have been helping people to find and keep a home. We believe that prevention is better than the cure, and work to prevent homelessness wherever possible.
Housing Rights’ policy work is informed by the views and experience of the people who contact us for advice and aims to support the identification of evidence based, user informed solutions.
Our work in preventing homelessness across all our services and more specifically with people experiencing homelessness, for example through our Beyond the Gate project, ensures that our contributions to this consultation are evidence based.
Housing Rights welcome this opportunity to contribute a number of overarching comments and specific suggestions which the NIHE may wish to consider when amending and refining the existing strategy.
