Clare added: We are very grateful to the local community and their political representatives who have supported us throughout the development of this scheme.We look forward to continuing to work with them to ensure that Rosemount Mews is a great place to live.
3 October 2017 A coalition of volunarty and charitable organisations has called on the Housing Executive to reinstate funding to all providers of a housing support programme that helps vulnerable people in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon.
Each year, the Supporting People (SP) programme assists more than 1,380 people in the council area to live independently and avoid problems that can result in hospitalisation, institutional care or homelessness.
We are urging the Housing Executive to reinstate the funding immediately to all providers.
We are up for reform and want to work in partnership with the Housing Executive and Department for Communities to deliver a strategic remodelling of the programme.
In recent weeks, the Department for Communities gave NIHE a one-off 2.6million allocation to the programme, however there is no certainty that all affected providers will be reimbursed for their financial loss and any monies received will be cut again in April 2018.
