Newgrove Housing Association is a registered ‘Approved Housing Body’ set up in 1999 to provide homes for people with disabilities. We provide this service in more than 50 locations throughout Ireland.
Newgrove is built on the philosophy that everybody has the right to good quality housing that meets their needs for as long as they choose to remain in our properties. We believe, in particular, that people with disabilities need a home where they can feel safe and secure, allowing them to live in and be part of their own communities.
Tenants in our group homes have their own bedrooms, share the common facilities in the houses, and avail of on-site support care services from RehabCare. We also provide ‘own-door’ independent living units for tenants who do not require on-site care support.
Newgrove provides all of the services to maintain the homes in excellent condition, ensuring that they are safe and secure and that they meet the needs of each tenant throughout their tenancy.
Accommodation is provided in Group Homes with on-site support services, independent accommodation units within a group home setting, also an accommodation service for persons with Autism with high support services.
These are the words of our Newgrove residents.
“You feel more independent here”.
“Great, you do your own thing”.
“We have a list, a budget sheet. I pick up my pension in the post office on a Thursday, I pay my rent into the bank, I pay for the shopping here”.
“I like my independence. They help me here to become as independent as I can. My goal this year is to move on further to another apartment I like company, I want to learn how to budget money”
