When everyone has a home

Housing advice for Northern Ireland


Housing Rights publishes housingadviceNI, a resource that aims to provide reliable independent housing advice and information to the public in Northern Ireland. The website is funded by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

Helping people with housing problems

HousingadviceNI aims to increase the availability of information on housing in Northern Ireland, to help people find the answers to their own housing concerns and to prevent homelessness. 

The website contains information on homelessness, housing options, renting privately and the particular housing issues that people from specific groups face.  We have dedicated sections for young people, people leaving or entering prison and foreign nationals living in Northern Ireland.

You can also speak to an adviser if you need some extra help with your housing issues.
