Case Study on Housing Needs Assessment, 3/4/13

Read another example of the successful work carried out by the Mercy Law Resource Centre.

Case study

One of our clients, referred to us by a women’s refuge, had left the family home due to domestic violence.  The local authority refused to place her on their housing list as she was a homeowner.  The refuge was unable to provide her with accommodation indefinitely and the client was faced with the prospect of emergency hostel accommodation.

MLRC made submissions to the local authority who eventually issued a Housing Needs Assessment letter which enabled our client to apply for rent supplement and rent privately.
