Habinteg plans, develops and manages ‘integrated’ housing schemes in both urban and rural areas throughout the region and works with a number of partner organisations in providing supported housing projects. The Association currently has over 2100 properties at more than 100 locations and 18 partnership schemes.
Habinteg’s Vision - ‘Homes | Lives | Communities' encapsulates the Association’s central aim of providing housing which combines a range of dwelling types - family houses, apartments and bungalows - in order to appropriately meet the needs of the widest range of users, including older persons and persons with a disability. Quality, sustainable developments include large and medium sized suburban housing developments, inner city apartments, individual rural cottages and specialised housing schemes. Partnership projects include sensitively designed housing with care schemes, temporary accommodation for people who are homeless, and housing initiatives for people with additional support needs.
The standard and quality of these developments has been recognised at local and national level with an impressive list of high profile awards, including the UK Housing Award for Outstanding Achievement in Social Housing in Northern Ireland, the RICS Award for the Northern Ireland region and a succession of NIHE Housing Council Awards for Best Scheme in Northern Ireland.
