In this presentation, Shane McQuillan and Vincent Keenan (Chief Executive, North and East Housing Association) will discuss the current housing crisis affecting Ireland in 2016, and will address some possible solutions. Shane will look at the scale of the problem and its principal causes, and will examine some of the steps that might be required involving Government, financial institutions, developers, builders and other key players. Vincent will describe the work going on in the voluntary housing sector to help address the current problems, and will share his perspective on how the contribution of approved housing bodies such as North and East Housing Association could be maximised.
