Hundreds of elderly people could end up in homeless hubs within 5 years, says charity

Hundreds of older people could end up in homeless hubs within five years if measures are not taken to regulate rent increases and protect the housing rights of the ageing population in Ireland. Alone, the national charity for older people in Ireland, believes that unless urgent action is taken, the housing crisis for older people will get worse in the years to come, as more and more people rent for longer rather than buying property. With an ageing population and the rising cost of rent, the danger is in five years time Ireland will end up with homeless hubs for older people.
