Providing Social Housing: Errigal Truagh Special Needs has been liaising with Monaghan County Council to explore the possibility of providing social housing in the Truagh area for any family or individual seeking a house. In particular, we are interested in establishing housing accommodation for all those with intellectual or physical disabilities who have a housing requirement immediately, or into the future. This need was clearly outlined to the Board of Directors by families at a planning meeting three years ago.
Our centre’s aim is to provide housing locally for adults with intellectual disabilities who require high, moderate and low care and support.
We wish to invite you to attend a meeting In Errigal Truagh Special Needs Centre, Killeanly, Emyvale on Tuesday the 20th of June at 8.30pm Representatives from Monaghan County Council will attend this meeting to outline the possibilities for housing and to answer your questions and concerns. The meeting is open to all individuals and groups in North Monaghan. It is also important to note that those who may be seeking accommodation and who have no disability are equally welcome as any proposed residential development would include a mix of houses for those with disabilities and those who do not. Errigal Truagh Special Needs regards this as a great opportunity to enhance the lives of all in our community who need residential accommodation. We encourage you to support this project by attending this initial meeting. Kind regards
The Board of Directors of Errigal Truagh Special Needs Parents & Friends Ltd
