Paul Givan, MLA, opens housing scheme in Belfast
Minister for Communities Paul Givan, MLA, officially opens supported living scheme in Belfast.
The £1.4 million scheme in South Belfast provides supported housing accommodation for people with learning disabilities; it is managed by our partners Belfast Health and Social Care Trust.
Officially opening the scheme Minister Givan spoke highly of the work Triangle Housing Association does and its impact on the local community.
Chris Alexander (CEO, Triangle Housing Association) said: “Triangle is very proud of this scheme which provides support and care to the tenants and promotes independent living. It is the outcome of a successful partnership over many years with the Belfast Health and Social Services Trust. I would like to thank the Trust for its commitment to making this all happen. The Supporting People team at the Northern Ireland Housing Executive must also be thanked for its commitment to make supported living a reality. Most importantly we hope as tenants you will flourish in your new homes for many years to come.”
Cecil Worthington, Director of Adult Social & Primary Care Services (Belfast Health and Social Care Trust) said that BHSCT was delighted to work with Triangle Housing in the specially designed building and said that we should never underestimate the importance of having your own front door.
