360. Why are the Government opposing affordable housing?

In this Reboot podcast Rory talks to Rosie Lynch of Workhouse Union about what is happening to community led affordable housing initiatives in Ireland. We ask why is the Government not supporting community led affordable housing?
It appears once more the market is king in housing policy as investor funds like Bartra get funding to build social and affordable housing but the Government wont fund affordable housing providers like O Cualann.
Community led housing, as explained by Rosie, is a really viable alternative affordable housing model that can address both the housing crisis and care crisis in terms of meeting housing needs in an inclusive way, and also meet environmental needs through community land trusts and cooperative co-housing. It needs real support. To find out more check out SOA at Self Organised Architecture Home – SOA
