Campaign Update

Congress believes that the Housing and Homeless Crisis should be treated as a National Emergency and requires a fundamental policy shift on the part of government.

We have established a Housing Campaign Group press for urgent action and policy change in this key area, along the line of the recommendations contained in our report. Our aim is to meet with government, all political parties and groupings, key local authorities and civil society bodies and to press the case for change.

The Housing Campaign Group is chaired by the Congress President, Sheila Nunan.
