  • Sourcing social housing properties from the private sector through schemes such as the Rental Accommodation Scheme and the Leasing Initiative.
  • Accessing accommodation provided by Voluntary and Co-operative Housing.
  • Provision of Traveller accommodation.
  • Provision of accommodation for homeless people.
  • Facilitating extensions to existing local authority homes to meet specific household needs.
  • Provision of certain grants to increase accessibility in the home for people with disabilities and special needs.
  • Provision of accommodation for older people.

You can contact Wicklow County Council directly for more information on housing supports available.
