In January 2021, Alpha Housing completed a £2.2 million project comprising 14 two bedroom apartments for independent, older people in East Belfast. Funding from the project included £1.4M in Department for Communities’ (DfC) grant, with the balance of funding provided by Alpha Housing.
Situated on Barnetts Road, near the Stormont Hotel, the scheme incorporates many of the ‘HAPPI principles’, the blueprint for high-quality housing for people in later life. Features of the scheme include generous internal space; maximum use of natural light; and high-quality outside space in a leafy, mature setting. Residents also benefit from closeness to local amenities and transport links, including the Stormont Estate and Glider bus service.
Older people want a wider range of housing options for their later years. Alpha Housing is proud to be helping pioneer a new generation of housing for older people in NI. We believe there is a huge unmet need for spacious and attractive homes of this type.
