HOUSING FOR NEED, NOT GREED- A Tenants First Publication.

FREE pdf publication about the current Irish housing policy, its effect on community, and the urgent need for change.

This document has been produced with the intention of:
1. Highlighting what Tenants First views to be a short-sighted approach to housing - motivated more by the personal gain 'of developers' than by the social need of 'those in poverty'.
2. Demonstrating the negative effects of this for individuals and communities, as well as for Irish society in general - to the extent that current housing policy can be shown to be wasteful of public resources, and an effective transfer of these resources from the most to the least in need.
3. Make proposals on the need for a different approach - as the basis for mobilising public opinion and engaging with political parties to effect change.
