As the national federation for co-operative housing in Ireland, we have an important role in representing and promoting the co-operative housing movement. We participate with other NGOs in the Community and Voluntary Pillar and collaborate with other Approved Housing Bodies within the Housing Alliance, engaging on a regular basis with Government, key stakeholders and the media.

Internationally, we represent Irish co-operative housing through membership of organisations such as Housing Europe, the International Co operative Alliance (ICA), and two sector groups of the ICA – Cooperatives Europe and Co-operative Housing International.
