Plans to deliver 300 new homes over the next five years for people with mental health difficulties have been announced by the Housing Association for Integrated Living (HAIL).
In its strategic plan to 2028, the association has outlined how it will address housing challenges for people living with mental health difficulties, who are often at risk of homelessness or hospitalisation without support.
Along with new homes, the housing association will also expand support services.
It aims to acquire more one-bedroom units, which tend to be the most suitable form of accommodation for the people it supports.
HAIL currently provides over 450 homes, mainly in Dublin and it plans to expand nationally over the coming years.
It offers support services to tenants and people living in private rented accommodation, local authority and social housing who have mental health diagnosis and who are at risk of losing their tenancy.
It expects demand for its mental health tenancy sustainment services to continue to grow.
