Today, the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) will launch the Housing Association Activity Report 2017. The report demonstrates that housing associations have been working flat-out in recent years to rebuild Ireland’s social housing stock. In 2017, 1 in every 3 new long-term social homes were delivered by housing associations. That’s 2,330 homes through a combination of build, acquisition and leasing.
The Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) welcomes today’s publication by the Department of Housing of a series of reports investigating the obstacles to affordable housing delivery in Ireland.

The ICSH regional meetings are a key event for members and provide a forum where housing associations can meet to discuss current issues of concern with ICSH staff and other relevant stakeholders.
Due to popular demand, we are running a second training seminar on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for staff and volunteers of housing associations. This is a tailored seminar for the AHB sector.
The Project Ireland 2040 commitments around Housing and Sustainable Urban Development demonstrate ambition, and the establishment of the National Regeneration and Development Agency indicates a genuine commitment and long-term strategy to ringfence public and state lands for affordable housing.
The Joint Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government heard from representatives from the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) today who have called for a cross-departmental team to be established to work alongside housing association to ensure the CSO/Eurostat classification does not derail our social housing delivery programme.
