Housing and The Homeless: Falling Through the Cracks

category national | consumer issues | event notice author Sunday January 22, 2017 21:22author by Sean Crudden - Cooley Environmental and Health Group Report this post to the editors

17th Annual Winter Workshop

The 17th annual winter workshop organised by Cooley Environmental and Health Group will take place in The Strand, Omeath, Co. Louth, on Saturday 28 January 2017 from 14:00 until 17:30. The topic of the workshop this time is Homelessness.

There will be 3 keynote speakers. Niall Hayden will deal with practical provision for homeless people. Michael Challoner will present on housing. Sean Brosnan will deal with the difficult topics of negative equity and repossession of homes. It is planned to break the attendance up into 3 small groups to each discuss one of the 3 topics mentioned. It is expected that participants for each of the three groups will be chosen at random. When the 3 groups have reported back to the full assembly Eamonn O'Boyle will sum up in a closing remark. It is hoped to publish a detailed record of the proceedings on the group's web-site soon after the event.

Saturday's workshop was a complete success. A report and photos which are being uploaded are available at the link given below. I think the main conclusion was that housing is the answer to homelessness and the county and city councils should take responsibility for building suitable housing.

For a number of years, sometimes while working abroad, I have been struck by the single-minded dedication of a small group of people in Louth who concern themselves with environmental and mental health issues. The reports periodically posted on Indimedia about AGMs and mental health workshops show what a small, local and committed group of people who know and trust each other can achieve. Incidentally, is Archbishop Michael Hynes still actively running his diocese, or is he an emeritus retired clergyman? Good luck to him and your colleagues whatever the case. Your work operates at a different tempo from many campaigning groups that publicise their activities on this and other sites.
