About Banner Housing
About Banner Housing
Banner Housing Association is a voluntary social housing provider. We provide housing within county Clare for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. We were initially founded by the Brothers of Charity Services, Clare in 2002 as a means of providing service users with a choice of living independently within their own community.
Since 2002 we have become an independent charity in our own right and work closely with Clare County Council and the Department of the Environment to access funding for social housing. Banner Housing Association is also a registered member of the Irish Council for Social Housing (ICSH).
From then Banner housing has grown from strength to strength supporting our tenants with disabilities and ensuring their accommodation needs are met while also supporting staff members.
“The vision of the Banner Housing Association is of a society in which people with an intellectual disability have a right of access to housing which is appropriate to their needs both physical and social, with security of tenure in a location of their choosing.”
