The main focus of this research relates to people who were evicted from Dublin Corporation housing units in 1997 and 1998 for anti-social behaviour. The research aimed to track the progress of people evicted in this two year period with a view to determining what happened to them following their eviction, the level of support and assistance they received from relevant agencies/organisations and their status in relation to issues such as accommodation and family circumstances. Interviews were held with 27 evictees and 8 Community Welfare Officers. Area Health Board files, documentation and reports relating to the implementation of the 1966 and 1997 Housing acts were analysed. Meetings were held with responsible agencies. It was recommended that families facing eviction were offered better support and consultation before and during the eviction process and that they should be monitored and offered better access to services after eviction. New accommodation models needed to be developed for families with children.
