Cabra housing scheme for elderly shortlisted for award

Broome Lodge in Cabra

Clúid Housing’s Broome Lodge in Cabra has been shortlisted in the prestigious Community Housing Awards.

The Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH) announced the names of more than 30 housing schemes that have been shortlisted for the prestigious biennial ICSH Allianz Community Housing Awards 2019.

Dr Donal McManus, chief executive of the ICSH, said the 2019 award entries demonstrate the scale of the work that is ongoing throughout the country, which is helping to build a progressive vision of the social housing sector.

In reference to the Broome Lodge development, which has been shortlisted under the Housing for Older People category, Dr McManus added: “This year, we have received more applications for the awards than ever before and this is particularly the case for the Housing for Older People category. Housing associations and local authorities are responding to the demographic evidence base. And the evidence is telling us that our population is ageing and living longer but also that older people want to remain in their own homes or communities for as long as possible. There is a growing need for supported housing options and both housing associations and local authorities are responding to this need”.

The ICSH Community Housing Awards, sponsored by Allianz, is a biennial competition that celebrates trailblazing excellence within the social housing sector, showcasing housing quality, innovation and partnership. The awards serve to demonstrate that approved housing bodies and local authorities are continually making efforts to meet high levels of housing demand and that good housing is the cornerstone to building diverse, sustainable and inclusive communities.

The awards showcase the best in housing for older people, homeless projects, housing for people with disabilities, housing for families, regeneration, collaboration initiatives, community integration and housing management.

This is the ninth year of the ICSH/Allianz Community Housing Awards, which will be presented after the ICSH Biennial Social Housing Conference dinner on October 10 in the Clayton Whites Hotel in Wexford. This year’s awards will be presented by RTÉ Presenter and broadcaster, Brendan Courtney.
