Who we are

The AHBRA was established in February 2021 to oversee the effective governance, financial management and performance of all voluntary and co-operative housing bodies, in accordance with the legal framework set out in the Housing (Regulation of Approved Housing Bodies) Act 2019 (the Act).

The powers and functions of the AHBRA will be commenced on a phased basis throughout 2021 and 2022, with the AHBRA anticipated to become operational in early 2022.

The Minister appointed nine-members to the Board of the AHBRA in February 2021, with Mr. Edward Lewis appointed as Chairperson and Susanna Lyons as Chief Executive.
