On June 7th, Housing Europe's General Assembly unanimously voted to welcome four new organisations from across the continent.

The Institute of Housing and Urban Rehabilitation (IHRU) from Portugal joins with a housing stock of 14,000 homes for social and affordable rental. IHRU is also managing several EU-funded initiatives under Portugal's Recovery and Resilience Plan. "Housing Europe is an important part of a strategy to open up, establish a network, build a new paradigm for public housing in Portugal and strengthen the national housing policy," IHRU stated.

The MR Housing Fund from Hungary, founded by the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta and the Hungarian Reformed Church Aid, supports thousands of households in crisis. They focus on sustainable housing solutions and community housing concepts. "An integral part of Fund's sustainable model is specific customer care, mentoring, and support for tenants belonging to vulnerable groups," they emphasised.

The Státní fond podpory investic (SFPI) from the Czech Republic aims to support sustainable development through housing and tourism projects. Their initiatives under the National Recovery Plan include the Regional Housing Advisory and Housing Investment Advisory Hub. "We expect from Housing Europe to be such a platform for us," SFPI noted.

After being a Housing Europe member pre-Brexit, we are glad to welcome back the Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations (NIFHA), representing 20 housing associations, provides social and affordable housing, contributing significantly to the community and economy. By joining Housing Europe, NIFHA aims to enhance collaboration on broader housing issues at the European level.

You will have a chance to hear more about their work and meet the housing experts at Housing Europe's public events in the very near future.
