Meet the team

The vision of the Housing Executive is one in which housing plays its part in creating a peaceful, inclusive, prosperous and fair society.

Our Community Cohesion team’s work is aimed at building better relations, cohesive communities and neighbourhoods that are safe and welcoming to all. This work takes place all year round but Community Relations and Cultural Awareness Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate that work and to celebrate diversity.

That’s why, during Community Relations Week, we will introduce you to the team as well as highlighting and celebrating the pioneering and award-winning work of the team and showcase the many excellent community-led good relations projects the organisation supports.

Denise Conlon is the Head of Communities for the Housing Executive and leads the team with:

  • Deirdre Crawford, the Neighbourhood and Cohesion Manager
  • Anne Ross, the Assistant Neighbourhood and Cohesion Manager
  • Christine Davis, the Shared Housing Officer
  • Gail Green, Interface Officer
  • Emma Galway, Good Relations Officer
  • Sylwia McAvoy, Race Relations Officer.

They are ably supported by Naoimh McArdle McFall, Community Involvement Officer, Lois Lyttle, Senior Administrative Support, and Nuala Mc Allister, Finance Support.

You can discuss Community Cohesion funding with the Good Relations Officer or local office representative for your area.
