Homeless Connect marks its 40th Anniversary

December 7, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

On Saturday 10 December 1983, the predecessor body of Homeless Connect came in to being.  According to a Belfast Telegraph article at the time, the NI Council for the Single Homeless was formed to “link voluntary and statutory agencies concerned with single homeless people… [and] to work to avoid duplication of effort, identify gaps in provision and stimulate research.” In later years, the name of the organisation was changed to the Council for the Homeless before changing to our current name Homeless Connect in 2021.

The 40th anniversary coincides with Homelessness Awareness Week 2023. On the afternoon of Thursday 7 December we will be holding an event to mark this milestone. The event will look to celebrate the incredible work of the homelessness sector in supporting so many people experiencing homelessness over the last forty years and look ahead to how we can take the journey to ending homelessness here.
