Update on the Collective Complaint to the Council of Europe

The CAN team have been meeting with local authority tenant communities around the country to hear about the current status of their housing standards since the October 2017 announcement from the Council of Europe that Ireland is in violation of Article 16 of The Revised European Social Charter. The Irish government is obliged to report back to the Council of Europe with a clear timed plan for regular assessment of their housing stock and how outstanding issues will be remedied. CAN are assisting tenants in gathering up to date information to assess what has improved so far, and what more must be done.
