Right-Sizing in the Approved Housing Body Sector

It is widely understood that our current housing stock is too rigid with a lack of options for people other than family size accommodation. The ICSH is working with approved housing bodies to continue, and increase, the provision of specialist housing in the sector, particularly in relation to older people. The issue of right-sizing is often debated as an option in addressing this, however there is a lack of research and information in Ireland to support it.

This research was conducted over an 8-week period from November 2019 to January 2020 with seven AHBs and seventeen tenants interviewed in this time.
