Delivering More

2021 was another hugely successful year for Tuath. It was the year in which we began our five-year strategic plan to 2025 and we are on course to meeting our objectives. In the face of many challenges, our workforce and capacity has never been stronger. Once more, record breaking figures for the association have resulted in much social good and immense happiness for many families, with some 4,000 people receiving keys to their new forever-homes.

We strive to attain the long-term sustainability of our buildings and places so that we can provide the best possible service to those living in them.
