"My project to improve neighbourhoods and help break the cycle of homelessness"

Paul Loughran, second from left, runs the Regenerate NI project.
The first post on our new somewhereto_ NI blog comes from Paul Loughran, a 21-year-old student at Queen's University, whose project Regenerate NI seeks to improve neighbourhoods and tackle homelessness.

somewhereto_ is a UK-wide, Big Lottery funded project that helps young people aged 16-25 to access underused or vacant spaces. PLACE is the Regional Delivery Partner for the project in Northern Ireland.

Why the new blog? We see it as a place to profile and share the things we care about across Northern Ireland, from projects that interest us to emerging entrepreneurs, artists, performers, and leaders that we want the world to know about. We will also feature journalism, short stories, and reviews authored by the brightest young talent in Northern Ireland.

If you want to write for the blog, or you know of something you think should be featured on it, let us know by emailing [email protected]
