Special Projects

The delivery of services and support to vulnerable members of Irish society is a key priority for Respond! Housing. Two key areas include homeless services and the promotion of mental health services for residents.

Homeless Services

Respond! Housing Association provide housing to homeless women and children in an environment that is safe, welcoming, family centred and homely. We offer support, information and resources which respect individual needs.

Family Hubs

Family Hubs are a caring new model of accommodation for families experiencing homelessness. They includes wrap-around services to help families be in a better position to move into their own homes in the short-term. Designed as a better alternative to commercial hotels and B&Bs, Respond! will be rolling out this model in a number of locations in partnership with local authorities.

Better Being

The Respond! Better Being Strategy’ was drafted in order to support an identifiable minority of parents and children on our estates who, from time to time, may experience mental health difficulties. This strategy was prepared as part of Respond!’s vision to support families in recognition of the fact that the need for social housing usually co-exists with many other. The strategy is currently being rolled out on a pilot basis over a 3 year period in a number of our estates in the South and South East.
