On Thursday 14 July 2022 Ombudsman Ger Deering hosted a workshop for advocates and NGOs in the homeless and housing sector to hear about the issues they and their service users face ‘on the ground’ in the areas of housing or housing assistance. Those who attended included representatives from Threshold, Focus Ireland, Fr Peter McVerry Trust, Crosscare, Pavee Pont, Irish Traveller Movement, Simon Communities of Ireland and Cope Galway. The issues identified in the workshop will feed into the Office’s future plans. This is the first in a series of workshops aimed at identifying issues in various sectors.
