Circle VHA works in partnership with a number of bodies to achieve its accommodation aims. These include local authorities, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, developers, agents and financial institutions.
The support of the relevant local authority is required where Circle VHA wishes to procure new social housing units. This is determined by the council as per its social housing need.
The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government is key in terms of providing loan finance to enable developments.
Meanwhile, relationships with developers and agents wishing to dispose of properties are key for Circle VHA to establish new developments.
Financial institutions are also important for providing loan finance for such developments.
In terms of housing management services, Circle VHA’s key stakeholders are the local authorities and the locally-based statutory and community-based services.
