Housing is an issue that often hits the headlines as a shortage of affordable and quality housing is having a major impact on the lives of many, not least those who are vulnerable. As of March 2019 there were 37,859 applicants on the social housing waiting list. Seven out of every 10 households waiting for a social home were deemed to be in priority need of housing – officially described as housing stress. The effects of the coronavirus pandemic will also have a huge impact on the sector.
This year the Northern Ireland Housing Conference will be delivered online. Once again, it will bring together key stakeholders and look at how we can fulfil the need for safe, affordable housing both now and in the future.
