The ICSH is holding two upcoming seminars on the two key funding schemes for AHBs - the Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS) and Capital Advance Leasing Facility (CALF).
This biennial ICSH conference, Social Housing 2019 – Innovation, delivery & sustainability will explore initiatives that have been successful, how they can be replicated and mainstreamed as well as what other measures and solutions that are needed to increase delivery and services to tenants. Speakers from Ireland, the EU and the US will also assist in learning that we can use in our own organisations, whether you are attending from the public, non-profi t or private sector.

Housing associations attending the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) AGM 2019 are ready to partner up with local authorities to deliver ambitious climate action measures for Ireland’s housing stock
Housing Law and Policy is an online module offered by the School of Law at the University of Limerick and Community Law & Mediation.
The ICSH will hold its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 19th June 2019, at 11am in the Ashling Hotel Dublin (adjacent to Heuston Station).
Today, the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) will launch the Housing Association Activity Report 2018. Ireland’s housing association sector provided 3,219 social homes in 2018, 38% of the national total, and took more than 4,000 households off the social housing waiting list. 54% were new build social homes provided by ICSH members to households on the social housing waiting list, 33% were acquisitions and 13% were leased.
The ICSH is proud to again partner with Allianz for the 2019 Community Housing Awards, which seek to recognise excellence across ten individual categories reflecting the current housing landscape. At a time of increased pressure for delivery from the sector we want to showcase the numerous approved housing bodies and local authorities rising to the challenge and continually making efforts to meet high housing demand.
Reflecting on the work of the ICSH during 2017 and in the years to come issues that were raised included the challenges facing housing associations and the ICSH as membership bodyin relation to the CSO/Eurostat reclassification of housing associations as part of the local government sub-sector. Also, the recurring concerns facing our smaller (Tier 1) members around long-serving voluntary board members and the problem of succession and governance were also raised. Minister Eoghan Muprhy addressed members in attendance and spoke of the housing association sector as critical to the delivery of social housing under Rebuilding Ireland.
