Glenveagh to help provide emergency accommodation for up to 40 Ukrainian families

  • New partnership with social and affordable housing provider Clúid announced
  • Glenveagh will also contribute a minimum of €250,000 to Ukrainian relief charities and treble contributions made by staff

Glenveagh Properties PLC, an Irish homebuilder, has teamed up with social and affordable housing provider Clúid to provide emergency accommodation in Ireland for up to 40 Ukrainian families who have had to leave their homes following the Russian invasion.

The partnership has been established in recent days in response to the grave humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Capacity will, in part, be sourced from Glenveagh’s completed developments that is additional to existing homes already allocated for housing in 2022.

The measure is one of a number being taken by Glenveagh to help people affected by the conflict.

Other measures include:

  • A minimum €250,000 contribution from the company to Ukrainian relief charities. As this is an emergency humanitarian crisis, Glenveagh will be donating this with immediate effect
  • Glenveagh has committed to treble all staff contributions to Ukrainian relief charities, which will be made on a voluntary basis through a staff payroll donation mechanism that will allow them to contribute the equivalent of a day’s pay
  • Every member of Glenveagh’s Executive Committee has undertaken to make this contribution
  • Glenveagh will also invite its suppliers, subcontractors and professional service firms to support the relief effort with a contribution of €500 (or more if circumstances allow)

Glenveagh Chief Executive Stephen Garvey said:

“We are shocked to see so many people in Ukraine suffering and we want to do something meaningful to help alleviate that suffering as best we can.

This shock is being felt throughout the business and I know people in every part of Glenveagh want to be part of a collective effort to maximise the impact we can make.

We are glad to partner with Clúid in making accommodation available for up to 40 Ukrainian families who need a safe place to stay.

We also want to recognise the generosity of our colleagues throughout Glenveagh by committing to a minimum donation of €250,000 to Ukrainian relief charities as part of supporting individual donations from colleagues by trebling each contribution.

This is a truly dreadful time for Ukrainian people and they can be assured of our support.”
