About the Housing Alliance
The Housing Alliance is a collaboration of six of Ireland’s largest Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs): Circle Voluntary Housing, Clúid Housing, Co-operative Housing Ireland, Oaklee Housing, Respond and Tuath Housing. The Housing Alliance was formed to promote the delivery of social and affordable housing by larger AHBs, to address barriers and challenges to delivery, and to promote strong professional approaches to housing management. Members work collaboratively on a range of issues, while also retaining their independent status. Most Housing Alliance members are active members of and participants in the Irish Council for Social Housing. All strive to exercise good governance and accountability, filing annual audited Financial Statements with the Companies Registration Office, and are regulated by the Housing Regulator and Charities Commissioner.
To deliver much-needed social housing, the Housing Alliance works in partnership with the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government; local authorities; the Housing Agency; a range of funding partners; and the private sector. Collectively, the Alliance is responsible for over 20,000 social homes nationwide, representing two-thirds of the total AHB housing stock in Ireland. Over the last two years, 2017 and 2018, Housing Alliance members delivered more than 3,500 homes across the country. We are currently working across at least 50 schemes, with over 2,000 homes in the pipeline, and more to come in 2019 and 2020, with the support of our partners.
The Government has recognised that AHBs are central to the meeting of Ireland’s social and affordable housing needs, with Rebuilding Ireland recognising that AHBs will deliver one-third of the 50,000 additional social homes needed by 2021.
