"Press Release 19/05/2017 Last Tuesday 16th of May, Richard Kelly along with other homeless people, supported by Wexford Housing Action Group, staged a protest at the Council offices. The protest was calling on the council to fulfil their duty under the 2009 Housing Act to provide emergency accommodation for homeless individuals. This legislation places the responsibility to provide emergency accommodation on the Local Authority, while allowing for the cost of this to be recouped from central funds. Richard has been homeless for over 3 and a half months now. His health is seriously deteriorating due to sleeping rough, out in all types of weather and damp conditions. The council are aware of all Richard's health issues, as he continues to engage with them on a weekly basis, but they are refusing to fulfil their statutory duty. 'Unfortunately Richard is not the only rough sleeper in Wexford. Our group receives calls for support from many homeless individuals every week. We will be mounting a weekly protest at the council every Tuesday from 9.30 for any one who is homeless, but not receiving the support they need from the Council' said Aislinn Wallace for Wexford Housing Action Group."
