We, along with The Holding Project, are hoping to develop the #EastBelfastHousingLab, a place to discuss and create new housing ideas, working with young citizens and local residents in East Belfast. We have been shortlisted for a Nationwide Building Society Community Grant.

Young people in the private rental sector are in significant housing stress due to the limited availability of suitable and affordable housing. There needs to be a radical rethink on how these challenges are tackled in the future by placing the priorities of young residents at the core.
