About Housing Rights

Established in 1964 Housing Rights is the leading provider of independent specialist housing advice services in Northern Ireland. 

We are a passionate team working tirelessly to keep people in their homes and help them with their housing problems, and this is reflected throughout all sections of the organization.  In addition to our advice and advocacy work, we undertake training, information, and policy work to try to improve conditions for those living in poor, unaffordable or unsustainable housing.  

We all play a part, and our staff bring their own unique expertise in contributing towards our vision of everyone having a home.  In the year 2020-2021 alone, we helped alleviate homelessness for a total of 422 households and provided help with 46,648 housing issues.
