Cluíd’s core work is the provision of ‘general needs’ housing that is, housing for people with low incomes. It also provides ‘special needs’ housing, that is, housing for people with a particular need in addition to a housing need. This may include for example elderly people or people with disabilities.
Tenants are drawn from the waiting list of the local authority in whose area housing is being provided. Different sized households are accommodated as well as households at different stages from young to elderly. The association aims to create mixed, sustainable communities where each household feels at home and where each has a contribution to make to the community.
