Housing Law & The Rights of Homeless People

   

´╗┐Good quality, affordable housing remains difficult for many organisations to access for as many of their clients as they would like.

Our courses in the areas of Housing and Homelessness equip staff with the information and skills needed to maximise opportunities for clients and help them insist on what is theirs by legal right, where possible. Where someone might not be legally entitled to something, the range of available options can be explored.

Sadly, difficulties and disputes will arise sometimes between organisations and their clients, and we can offer courses which provide clarity on the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants / licencees.

Increasingly, social care providers are involved in disputes between clients, or between a client and another party. Our courses on anti-social behaviour and domestic violence have proven very effective.

Previously attended a course and my knowledge was basic. I feel that I understand more now: what it is, and how and when to use it.
