Banner Housing Association recently completed the purchase of four two bedroom apartments in Cluain Ros Leamhain, Ennis, Co Clare. Banner Housing Association worked in conjunction with Ennis Town Council, the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government, Clann Credo Limited and NAMA/Deloitte Receivers to ensure tenants will receive high specification homes.
The apartments will be allocated to tenants with an Intellectual Disability who had the choice to move from group home settings and will now live more independently while receiving care supports through the Brothers of Charity Services Clare.
Banner Housing Association accessed private finance through Clann Credo and also agreed a Payment & Availability Agreement through the Department and Ennis Town Council which will help repay the loan finance to Clann Credo. This is an exciting project which is working well and the Association look forward to purchasing further properties using these new funding methods.
