Fórsa has negotiated a new benefit for its members, who now have access to a free health and medical information helpline. Staffed by qualified nurses, the service provides information on health and fitness, as well as non-diagnostic advice on medical matters.

Fórsa representatives were amongst those in attendance at the Raise the Roof housing conference in Dublin last Wednesday (30th January). The event focused on Ireland’s ever-increasing rate of homelessness, particularly the number of families and children currently without a home.
