MLRC holds training session on housing law for staff of Ruhama

As part of MLRC’s work, we provide training in housing law to organisations working in the field of homelessness. On 8th October 2014, MLRC held an evening training session in housing law for the staff and volunteers of Ruhama.

Ruhama is a Dublin-based NGO, working on a national level with women affected by prostitution and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.

This training session gave practical information and advice to Ruhama’s staff and volunteers to help them deal with housing issues affecting the women who come to them for assistance, e.g. eligibility for entry onto the housing list, the law regarding transfers, the new Housing Assistance Payment, and the law regarding homelessness.

Attendees gave constructive and positive feedback, attendees noted that the session was very helpful, particularly the case studies, which also enabled the attendees talk about experiences of cases they had dealt with. Thank you to all those who attended!

If you are interested in organising a training session by MLRC, please contact Shauna on 01 4537459 or at shauna@mercylaw.ie. We would be very happy to hear from you and discuss the training that would be most useful for you.
