Welcome to Co-operative Housing Ireland

Co-operative Housing Ireland is Ireland's national federation for the co-operative housing sector. Since its foundation in 1973 Co-operative Housing Ireland has:


Supported the provision of approximately 5,500 homes across a mix of tenures

Taken responsibility for the ongoing management of 2,200 homes available at affordable rents

Promoted the development of locally affiliated co-operative societies across Ireland

Provided wider community development opportunities such as Childcare Services

We are a co-operative of co-operatives, currently working with affiliated societies in Dublin, Kildare, Leinster, Munster and the west of Ireland. Our local structure means that housing services are always locally owned and locally managed.

Our Board is currently seeking expressions of interest from talented individuals with backgrounds in governance, finance, housing delivery, childcare, and related fields. Ideally, candidates will have previous voluntary board experience. Appointments are non-remunerated, and for terms of two-years, which can be renewed.

Please submit expressions of interest by Friday, August 3rd, 2018.
