With the support of the Citizens Information Board, the housing group launched the booklet “Social Housing Rights Explained”. The booklet, a collaboration by the housing group, provides information to tenants, prospective tenants and supporting service providers on housing issues and information on where they can get further support. It also outlines the legal responsibilities of local authorities.
The housing group comprises Ballymun Community Law Centre, Barnardos, CAN – Community Action Network, Focus Ireland, the Irish Traveller Movement Law Centre, Mercy Law Resource Centre, Northside Community Law Centre (CLM) and the Public Interest Law Alliance. The informal group meets on a monthly basis to share information and consider matters of housing law and policy relevant to their work. The group also collaborates on projects such as this booklet where appropriate.
