• #Gaffs4All
    The government called its latest plan Housing for All but as with previous housing plans, it hasn’t delivered. Rents and house prices continue to rise exponentially, social and affordable housing delivery is behind targets, homelessness has also increased. The housing crisis is scarring a generation. For renters, it is beyond a cost of living crisis – it is a cost of survival crisis. We need a new vision and a new housing plan. We need Gaffs for All: delivering affordable, decent, green, forever homes. The housing crisis can be solved with the right policies and real action and funding in housing. We need a new housing plan and real solutions that will actually work to deliver affordable green homes for all – not half-baked solutions that will leave us with a permanent crisis and merely benefit the property industry and investor funds as the current housing plan does. Please sign this petition calling on the Government to implement the following ten key policies. After you have signed, share it on social media, with #gaffs4all and #right2housing Lets solve this housing crisis together!

  • Turn Empty Homes into Public Homes: kildare county council
    Thousands of people are being forced into factory-like accomodation with camp beds in halls, insecure hostels and cramped institutions, while some are even pitching tents or sleeping on the streets. Meanwhile thousands of homes lie empty across the Island - some have been built by toxic vulture funds and are owned by banks and businesses waiting on the prices to rise to turn a quick buck. Others are lying in disrepair with little intention to be used again. Many Airbnb’s and tourist lets are used only for a few weeks of the year.
