The Inaugural meeting of the Donegal Homeless & Housing Coalition will take place this evening at the Station House Hotel, Letterkenny.
The meeting aims to bring together a broad range of groups to represent Donegal within the National Homeless & Housing Coalition which is represented by over 50 organisations including; community groups, charities, trade unions, and political groups.
SIPTU organiser for Donegal, Martin O’Rourke, who will be speaking at the meeting said: “People on low incomes and minimum wage employment are finding it difficult to find affordable accommodation, and for the first time in a generation people can’t aspire to owning their own home”.
The meeting is open to the public and starts at 7pm.
The meeting will discuss the need to build social housing in Donegal and to support the national protest that will be taking place in Dublin on April 7th and the need for a Donegal voice within the movement.
