199. How to House Refugees

The Irish people have reacted with incredible generosity to the war in Ukraine. But after the pledges of support we need real action. Joining Rory and Tony to discuss how we can house the people fleeing war and those already stuck in our refugee system is Housing Lecturer with TUD and member of the Irish Refugee Council, Dr Lorcan Sirr.
We discuss the capacity in our holiday home, Air BnB and vacant property stock and how it could be utilised. Lorcan talks about the need for wrap-around supports and how we can use this difficult time to improve the lives of people who come here and our overall housing system.
