Last week saw the escalation of a number of campaigns across Belfast by the homeless, those living in poor housing and communities being squeezed by a pro-developer agenda within Belfast City Council and systematically excluded from decision making processes impacting the future of their families and communities.

Member groups involved in the #123GP campaign for better mental health expertise among GPs held a campaign workshop in Draperstown on 14 October 2017.
