An Irish Solution to an Irish Problem

Housing Together

Housing Together was established in June 2018 by a group of like-minded professionals to bring together private investors and Local Authorities to help solve the housing crisis through a number of social housing initiatives. Since being established we have provided over 400 homes for Social Housing.

  • Booming population growth: 34,000

  • Ireland has the lowest death rate in the EU

  • Ireland has the youngest population in the EU

  • All-time high rates of immigration with 65,200

Social Impact Investing

Changing People’s Lives for the Better

Social Impact Investing is an exciting and rapidly growing industry, powered by investors who want to better understand how their money is being applied and who are determined to generate a positive social impact as well as good financial returns.

A growing area of Social Impact Investing is the funding of social and affordable housing.

Often, investment in social housing is associated with properties which are located in designated social housing areas. Housing Together policy is different and identifies properties in private developments for lease to the Local Authority, delivering a mix of social housing amongst privately-owned housing.

A key objective of the Irish Governments Housing Policy is to achieve sustainable communities by having a good balance of mixed-income and mixed-tenure households.

The mixing of people from different socio-economic backgrounds creates more diverse, socially cohesive and interesting communities and helps to improve social mobility.

The alternative system of uniform estates can lead to segregation of different socioeconomic groups and to the creation of deprived ghettos.
