Welcome to the first episode of the Between The Lines podcast with Gordie Walker. The team have been out and about collecting stories that we believe are interesting and help showcase some of the work that is going on in the north of the city and further afield
In This Episode
Newington Housing Association formed in 1975. It manages nearly 700 homes in mainly Interface areas in North Belfast. As times have changed so too has Newington, broadening its role from simply meeting immediate housing needs, to meeting wider community needs and taking brave steps towards transforming and regenerating communities and resolving interface issues.
Anthony Kerr from Newington Housing reflects on their work in reducing and confronting anti-social behaviour (ASB) and looks at how social and economic pressures are affecting their tenants.
