a human right.

Housing is a human right, with the help of supporters who campaign with us and share our dedication to homeless prevention, we are building a fairer housing system for all.

Liz’s story

We help people experiencing renting problems

Every hour I’d be wondering whether the water would work, whether the heat would be cut, whether I’d be locked out... I’m so thankful for the help I received from Threshold. They helped me understand what supports were available.

The Right to Housing

Threshold is calling for the inclusion of the Right to Housing in the Irish constitution. We strongly believe housing is a human right.

Threshold worked diligently to ensure that the protections afforded to tenants were at the forefront of the government’s thinking and that the large number of people who lost their livelihood were not forgotten.

We seek innovative solutions through quality research

Threshold's ground-breaking policy is vital to understanding Ireland's acute housing problems, which informs our homelessness prevention work.
