We are delighted to partner with NIHE and Rural Community Network on our #RuralHomesNI campaign. Over the next fortnight we will share some of the excellent work being done by #housingassociations in rural areas. We are passionate about building and growing rural communities.
Very productive online meeting with @CaralNiChuilin and @CommunitiesNI officials today. Caral very clear that we “need to increase supply of social and affordable homes”. Allocations policy, development programme, supporting people and infrastructure issues also discussed.
Good news for the VHE tenants and with a sizeable investment programme to renovate and refurbish these homes, Choice has committed to bring the homes up to standard and secure their future as much needed social homes in NI.

We need to be clear that the “protected” budget is a frozen budget. In real terms that is a reduced budget. A budget that has now been frozen for so long, it is a cut of over 30% in real terms. @CaralNiChuilin @CommunitiesNI @KeepSP_NI
Effective & fair allocations with a focus on those in most need is essential. I will work with NIHE to bring into effect changes to the selection scheme to make it more effective at addressing housing stress & keep fairness and equality at its heart – CNíC #VirtualHS2020
.@CommunitiesNI Minister @CaralNiChuilin has secured @niassembly approval of legislation to protect social housing new build and affordable housing programmes. The legislation will be referred to @ONS for reconsideration of their decision to reclassify housing associations here.
There is a huge need for social housing. Investing in new social homes is a simple way to boost the economy, create jobs and improve people’s lives. Social homes are about more than bricks and mortar. That’s why we support #HomesAtTheHeart @CIHNI http://ow.ly/chY050AhkFe
