Housing Rights

As welfare reform and changes to the Social Fund have started to take effect, Housing Rights has found that affordability is consistently one of the top issues encountered by clients. Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) has found that both the social and private rented sectors are at risk of poverty after housing costs are met, this is particularly the case for low income households in the private rented sector, who face a particularly high housing cost burden and a high risk of poverty.
