Updates on the agenda at the next Practitioners’ Forum

The next Housing Advice Practitioners’ Forum will take place online on Wednesday, March 30. The webinar starts at 2:00 pm and will include a presentation from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

Keeping our members updated on the latest information on housing legislation, policy and practice is an important aspect of Housing Rights' work.

The upcoming forum will open with Northern Ireland Housing Executive providing information on the updates and changes to discretionary housing payments, and attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions. 

Other points of discussion during this session will include:

  • ways to help private tenants who are struggling to access and sustain tenancies
  • how former homes are dealt with by universal credit
  • updates to welfare supplementary payments
  • update on the Private Tenancies Bill

As always, members will have the opportunity to discuss client issues with Housing Rights specialist advisers.
