There are many facets to the housing and homelessness crisis and as our guest in the tortoise shack, CEO of Threshold John-Mark McCafferty, puts it “there is no one solution.” There are lots of big things that can be done, but John-Mark believes strongly that prevention is better than cure.
Threshold has worked for people struggling within the private rental sector since 1978 and now, on their 40th anniversary, see a system that without serious action is likely to get worse before it gets better.
In the face of a deepening crisis Threshold continue to campaign for a fair, sustainable rental market with a clear emphasis on supporting, informing and advocating for vulnerable tenants.
