Co-operatives are always people-centred and values-led. We provide comprehensive training programmes to support our members to give them the skills they need to exercise real leadership for their communities, making for a more resilient society that is better placed to cope with change.
As a co-operative the promotion of community is at the heart of Co-operative Housing Ireland's values. We have supported the development of a co-operative Child and Community Service that currently operates within four of our communities.
Our affiliated societies also support community development through summer programmes for young people, community gardens, local book clubs and other structured activities. We strive to promote education and employment opportunities through the co-operative model in all our work.
