Housing Rights

We work tirelessly everyday to keep people in their homes and help them with their housing problems. We believe that everyone should have a home.

Housing Rights was established as a charity in 1964.  The charity’s mission is to improve lives by tackling homelessness and housing problems, and works towards the vision: ‘When everyone has a home.

Housing Rights is the leading provider of independent advice, training and information on housing and homelessness issues in Northern Ireland.  The organisation also has an effective policy, practice and research team who work to influence and deliver positive change. All work is aimed at preventing homelessness, helping people access appropriate accommodation, and where possible, helping people sustain their existing accommodation. The charity recognises that this is not always possible, and also works to help alleviate homelessness for people who, for whatever reason, find themselves facing this crisis.

Housing Rights works on behalf of anyone who is homeless or in housing need in Northern Ireland, and clients are drawn from a diverse range of groups and from all communities.  The office is based in Belfast but services are provided to the whole of Northern Ireland.
