One the houses in the Drimoleague scheme.

CARBERY Housing Association (CHA) is inviting anyone in West Cork who would like to help the work of the association to attend its AGM which will be held from  2-5pm on Saturday, May 19th next at the West Cork Hotel in Skibbereen.

The AGM will focus on asking participants to help brainstorm how to achieve the ambitious objective of housing 300 households in one year forward, and in  developing a joint  vision of where the association should be heading in the future.

CHA is inviting persons with skills, technical, financial, legal and managerial, and with energy and positivity, to join as members,  volunteers, or executive committee members.

CHA recently launched a private leasing Initiative to secure properties all over the county, to be leased for periods of 10 to 20 years by the association and then rented to single people and families on housing lists, at council rent levels.

The first houses in the initiative came on stream in Drimoleague in recent weeks.

The Association works on a voluntary basis at present, and depends on charitable donations and fundraising .
