The negative impact of the Northern Ireland Troubles is still evident today in some areas of the region where division between Catholic and Protestant communities remains but the Bridging the Divide initiative is working towards narrowing and indeed bridging that gap specifically in its confines north of the city.

It does this by bringing communities together from both sides through sport and social events as well as food-bank, clothing and Christmas appeals. The initiative is funded by 174 Trust, a non-denominational Christian community development organisation in North Belfast, actively working to produce a peaceful society.

Hagan Homes has pledged to support the organisation's efforts over the next three years.
