Approved Housing Bodies

Housing Support

Approved Housing Bodies are independent, non-profit making organisations and generally target specific areas of housing need.

They provide rented housing and services for people who are unable to provide their own homes, and for special needs groups such as older people with a disability, or homeless people.

We provide support to Approved Housing Bodies to manage, buy, build or lease properties for social housing. 

Approved voluntary housing bodies can apply for assistance under the Capital Assistance Scheme or Capital Advance Leasing Facility (CALF) for the provision of accommodation for eligible persons. 

We work with voluntary bodies under the following schemes.
