Compassion Fatigue Training - Dublin, 5th October 2017

This training day takes place on the 5th October in the Ashling Hotel, Dublin and will consist of looking at those who, by 'giving too much' while working in in their profressional capacity in the caring sector, can suffer from Compassion Fatigue, which is a type of burnout, but one that mainly stems from becoming too emotionally attached to the people we work with. Professionals will reflect on their day-to-day working routine while working out what areas could be managed better in relation to self-care. 
 

2016 HAPM Results Report

HAPM (Housing Association Performance Management) has been developed and managed by the ICSH since 2004 and is an important self-monitoring tool for housing associations to assess their performance and benchmark this within the sector. The number of participating members and tenancies covered by the HAPM framework has grown in recent years and the ICSH is delighted to see this trend has continued into 2016. There has never been a greater focus on governance and compliance within the housing association sector and HAPM demonstrates that, notwithstanding the legislative, economic or regulatory changes, housing associations continue to provide an excellent service to tenants and other stakeholders.

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.
