The Hosford Project aims to provide accommodation to those facing homelessness, but only has 26 apartments at any one time, sadly there are those that there is simply no room for.

At present, there are 5,000 homeless in Belfast each year. Last year alone Hosford received 1000 referrals from people looking for a bed, they could only accommodate 60 of those people.

James Duggan said: “We are passionate about supporting our local community and wanted to do something that would make a real impact. Initially our involvement is to provide our winter warmth packs and down the line, we will be helping those in need get back on their feet by donating home basics that many of us take for granted, such as kettles and toasters.”
