FOCUS IRELAND AND THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL POLICY (TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN) ARE HOSTING MONTHLY LUNCHTIME TALKS ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH IN 2015.

We would like to invite you to The Focus Ireland October Lunchtime Talk.

Dr. Kathy Walsh will present on the Housing Agency's research 'Family Pathways into Homelessness: From the perspective of families'. This research examines the circumstances in which 30 families in Dublin became homeless and their subsequent trajectories. Almost all of the families had exited private rented accommodation which they could no longer afford, or were issued Notices of Termination. A small number had been homeless before. Whereas on previous occasions they would have quickly re-entered private rented accommodation, this time they were unable to do so because of its unaffordability and landlord ‘no rent allowances’ rules. The publication of this important research is timely given the increasing number of families becoming homeless each month in Dublin.

Date: Thursday 8th October 2015

Time: 1.00-2.00pm

Location: Focus Ireland, The Chapel, George's Hill, Halston Street, Dublin 7 (View a map and get directions here).

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.

Please feel free to send this invitation onto your colleagues. We look forward to seeing you at this talk.
