Housing is a very difficult area and NH does not have specialist skills in this area.

We usually recommend that people work with the specialist housing charities listed below.

The steps are: 

  • Does you have refugee status or leave to remain? GNIB stamp 4? Without this it’s almost impossible to secure subsidised housing
  • Register on the Westmeath Co. Co housing list https://www.westmeathcoco.ie/en/media/Social%20Housing%20Support.pdf
  • Register with the following housing charities
  • Check out housing adverts in the local papers
  • Check out, and keep checking every week, the estate agents. 
  • Check out smaller towns and villages outside Athlone. I’ve had success in Ballymahon and Ferbane recently.
