Focus Ireland launch housing campaign

Housing charity Focus Ireland has mounted a concerted campaign to secure a legal right to housing for all citizens in need of a home, in line with the situation in other European countries.

The Right To A Home campaign commenced yesterday, as a survey for the charity suggested 80 per cent of the public support a constitutional right to a home.

Focus Ireland chief executive Joyce Loughnan said: “Focus Ireland believes the failure to include the right to housing as one of the issues for the Constitutional convention to examine is a mistake by the Government.”

The charity said the Government is was “out of step with the public” on the issue and requested that the right to a home be added to the agenda for the second phase of the Constitutional Convention.
