The Government beat its own deadline to deliver the housing and homelessness plan. It was promised in 100 days and delivered in 75.

This urgency is welcome. Focus Ireland believes there must now be similar urgency to develop a clear plan to help ease the immediate and deepening family homeless crisis.

The new plan has many positive measures but as yet its capacity to deliver homes is on hold and dependent on subsequent plans.
