“I am absolutely delighted to welcome The Prince of Wales to East Belfast today to launch Homewards, a five-year projected aimed at ending homeless. Six locations across the UK have been chosen, with Hosford House in Belfast being recognised and forming part of this exciting plan.
Hosford house has served East Belfast for over twenty years, providing key tenancy support to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Homelessness and housing stress is at an all-time high across our city, with waiting lists for social homes, increased rent prices and a reduction in the number of private properties available to rent.
This long-term commitment and investment by The Prince of Wales to support Hosford House is significant, giving hope at a time when homelessness is so prevalent.”
