The Plan identifies a number of groups with preferential access to housing support due to their vulnerability in the housing market, such as those requiring long-term care and individuals with disabilities, people aged over 65 years, and women who are victims of gender violence. In addition, the Plan envisages specific actions to favour these groups, such as protected accommodation. It also includes measures to eradicate substandard housing.
