Empty homes cost money and deprive communities of an opportunity for good quality housing. Habitat NI and Ballymena Methodist are partnering to transform an empty manse in the town.
Working together; Ballymena Methodist Church and Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland will turn an empty, landmark building in the heart of Ballymena into much needed multi-purpose community space and 3 one bedroom apartments which will provide affordable accommodation for vulnerable young people.
Young people have been disproportionately affected by a lack of affordable homes and singles make up more than 50% of those in housing stress.
The building, on Ballymoney Road, previously the Methodist manse, was rented to commercial tenants but has been unused for the last couple of years.
The church is underpinning the project cost but the project needs more partners, community support and the volunteers who will help deliver the project.
