Presentation to Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection
Peter McVerry Trust wrote to the Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection in late April 2015 asking them to discuss the issue of rent supplement. Our correspondence and request was prompted by a decision by the Department of Social Protection not to increase rent supplement rates. This decision came after a long period of review by the Department and went against calls from Peter McVerry Trust and others in the housing and homeless sectors.
Peter McVerry Trust was invited by the Joint Committee to present on the issue of rent supplement oat their meeting of June 10th. You can download our initial presentation at the link below.
