Corporate Governance

The primary objective of Homeless Care CLG (the Company) is to provide a purpose built residential facility as a learning and support centre for young adults who are leaving state care.

While the Company will develop the facility it will outsource day to day management to a suitably skilled operator experienced in this field. The governance model is therefore predicated on this business model.

The Board of Directors is comprised of five highly experienced and respected individuals who possess considerable senior managerial experience, and all of whom actively participate at board level in both commercial and not for profit organisations.

The Company is registered with:

  • The Companies Registration Office  — CRO no.: 554299
  • The Charities Regulator — Registration no: 20142285
  • The Revenue Commissioners — Tax Registration no.: 3325050HH, Charitable Status no.:CHY21475
  • The Housing Agency Regulation — Status: Tier 1
