Housing advice for Northern Ireland

All

Homelessness can happen to anyone. It's important to know who can help you if you end up in this situation.  The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is legally responsible for helping people who are homeless in Northern Ireland.   Over 18,000 households asked the Housing Executive for help with homelessness in 2018/19.

Universal credit is rolling out across Northern Ireland. Since December 2018 any working age person making a new claim for social security assistance will claim universal credit instead of some of the current benefits, including Housing Benefit.
