The Dublin Tenants Association has an online campaign highlighting abuses in Ireland’s rental sector and they want you to get involved.
With Twitter as a platform they’re sharing storied from tenants about the abuses of power and wealth that sees Ireland’s renters under increasing pressure to avoid homelessness. Pressures are mostly but not exclusively financial and these take a toll on all aspects of tenants’ lives from the bottom line through to mental health.
The Dublin Tenants Association is a peer-based support group providing advice and advocacy from their Dublin 7 base.
As the campaign kicks off here we’ve shared a few of the tweets that have arrived in already and encourage readers to take a look at some of our previous work on the housing crisis.
