As well as providing a high standard of accommodation, care and support the Project employs a ‘client centred Approach’, with the emphasis on offering a friendly, supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere.
Residents can share the accommodation with a family member, partner or friend, as a guest and part of the caring process. Residents, with the support of their carer’s, maintain close contact with statutory and voluntary agencies that are engaged in the provision of services to people living with HIV/AIDS.
While the Project requires sound and reliable structures for its efficient running, the overall purpose is to offer the residents a friendly and relaxed atmosphere which is non institutional and non-restrictive. Our aim is to make them feel welcome and at home. In general Staff and Volunteers provide support of a type which a normal reasonably functioning "family" would give to a member with HIV/AIDS.
Since the commencement of the operations of the Housing Project in January 1994 some 87 people have occupied our apartments, of whom 53 have died.
With this ever demand for accommodation, the Board decided some time ago to increase the number of our apartments. We now have 24 first-class, fully furnished apartments in our two buildings in Granby Lane in Central Dublin. Both buildings have lifts and are fully accessible for wheelchair users.
