Charity Begins At Home With Platinum Financial
Platinum Financial are delighted to announce Extern Homes as their Charity of the Year Partner for 2017.
Extern Homes has been launched by Extern, the leading social justice charity. The transformational scheme is a first for Northern Ireland, with Extern purchasing houses to create homes for people who are homeless.
Extern Homes will allow those individuals and families who are homeless, and ready to move on with their lives, to do so - breaking the cycle which finds them forced to stay in hostels, or temporary accommodation, because they aren’t a priority for social housing or are finding it impossible to access the private rented sector.
“Each night in Belfast, Extern is supporting over 380 families and individuals who are at risk of homelessness, or who are homeless, with no front door to call their own. Through Extern Homes, we are enabling people to not only get back the key to unlock a whole new future for themselves, and their families, as a result of the wraparound support and training opportunities which Extern is providing as part of these life-changing tenancies.”
Charlie Mack, Extern CEO
Extern believe in changing lives everyday by delivering forward looking, trustworthy and quality solutions.
Their commitment to the community and aspirations for the future perfectly complement Platinum’s passion for nuturing the development of our local community.
“At Platinum we pride ourselves on our unique approach to the financial services industy. We believe in forward thinking and are delighted to support the Extern Homes project,the first of its kind in Northern Ireland. ”
Jonathan Scott, Platinum Financial Managing Director
