Housing survey

Take part in Comhdháil Oileáin na hÉireann‘s HOUSING SURVEY of Ireland’s Offshore Islands by clicking this link.

*We would like to invite everyone to answer this survey on island housing situation and needs.*

The purpose of this study to ascertain the views and needs of island residents on their household’s present housing circumstances and future housing requirements. The research is being carried out in partnership between Comhar na nOileán and researchers from University College Cork (UCC).

What would your participation involve? 

Should you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey questionnaire, which will include questions on your current housing circumstances and future housing needs.

Why is your participation important

The results of this survey will be used to identify challenges and possible solutions, and in communication with different stakeholders in the local, regional and national level – including any possible funding bodies.

This survey is for everyone currently living on an island or thinking about moving to an island. It would be especially important that we could capture the needs of those whose housing situation at the moment is not ideal be it e.g. because of lack of housing or because the grants available for retrofitting are not adequate – or anything in between!
