Summary

Rising rents and a shortage of rental properties mean that many tenants are facing a very insecure future.

Our Tenancy Protection Service in the West of Ireland regional office shows that our service prevented 1,014 people from becoming homeless from June 2016 to May 2017.

The West of Ireland is facing an escalating housing and homelessness crisis. The proportion of families renting is higher in this region than in almost any other region in the country.
