Clár ICH is a Voluntary Housing Association based in Claremorris, Co. Mayo and develops social housing projects to benefit older people, people with disabilities and those living in the UK wishing to return home. Funding from the WDC Community Loan Fund enabled the Association to refurbish four houses located in townlands surrounding Claremorris. These houses were allocated to families wishing to relocate to rural areas. This initiative is an excellent example of a social economy project in a rural area. This project will have the dual benefit of providing much needed accommodation to families and ensuring that local, rural services such as shops, national schools etc. are maintained.
