Housing Associations Call for Renewed Focus on Social Housing at AGM 2017

 
The five-pillar action plan on Housing and Homelessness, Rebuilding Ireland is only one-year off the block and must be given adequate resources to deliver on its commitments. So says Justin O'Brien, President of the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH), speaking today (3rd July 2017) at the organisation’s AGM in the Ashling Hotel Dublin.
 
Welcoming new Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy to the event, Mr O’Brien says that tackling homelessness remains the most critical housing issue for Rebuilding Ireland. However, any review of the Rebuilding Ireland plan must also recognise that the homelessness crisis will not be addressed without the urgent delivery and significant scaling-up of social housing. “Housing associations can and have made a defining contribution here. In 2016 we accommodated almost 2,000 households from the waiting lists from new delivery and letting of existing stock”, he says.
