Economic inequality and poverty risk are growing

Posted: 5 April 2018

From the closure of 2017, in Italy, has been registered a growth of economic inequality and poverty risk or social exclusion.

According to the Federcasa-Nomisma survey “Social Mediation in Social Housing Asset Management Activities”, there are 1,708 million families living in a situation of economic hardship due to rent payment (41.8% of the 4.086 million families in rent on the free market) and the Social Housing asset managed is a little bit more than 850000 houses, with very low turnover rates.

In this context, the social mediator can be a solution to reduce disadvantaged situations.
