About HAIL

HAIL is an Approved Housing Body with a strong reputation in providing both quality housing and floating support services to people with mental health difficulties in their own homes across Dublin, Kildare, Laois and Louth.

HAIL’s vision is to be the provider of choice for housing and support for people with mental health difficulties, enabling them to achieve and sustain independent living in the community by having secure, quality, affordable accommodation with appropriate support services tailored to their needs.

HAIL’s mission is to provide housing and individually tailored support services to support tenants and clients, primarily those with mental health difficulties, to integrate and live independent lives in the community.

Our services provide support to HAIL tenants in their own homes and to clients in non-HAIL tenancies e.g. in Local Authority, private rented and other Voluntary Housing Body tenures. We also source tenancies for HSE clients exiting homelessness from hospital, hostels and congregated settings, supporting them in their resettlement and community based mental health recovery.

Job Purpose Summary

Adequate and appropriate housing is a key component of establishing and maintaining human well being. The primary principles relevant to the housing needs of individuals with mental health difficulties include flexible community care/high quality interagency shared case loads, specialist mental health interventions, generic and practical supports and inclusiveness.

Rebuilding Ireland (July 2016), our Government’s Action Pan for Housing and Homelessness cites that; “accommodation alone will not address the underlying problems of vulnerable groups such as those experiencing mental ill health and that their complex needs must be addressed by offering supports of a holistic, medical and practical manner.”

Role Description
