It’s In Your Hands Campaign
Shelter NI have launched a new dynamic campaign aimed at raising awareness of homelessness in Northern Ireland.
From the turn of the century, levels of homelessness in Northern Ireland have doubled and in NI the level of homelessness is comparatively the highest in the UK. *
“We can no longer ignore the scale of homelessness in NI. Thousands of families and children continue to be denied their right to have a home of their own because we are all prepared to settle for homeless people living in a hostel or other temporary accommodation for long periods. Justice demands an end to long term homelessness, we all have a responsibility to act now” said Tony McQuillan, Shelter NI Director.
