September 2018 - Dwell celebration

On 20 September Dwell's staff, patron and board, along with our supporters, partners and other friends of Dwell came together to celebrate five years of Dwell Housing Trust and our Kilbirnie development.

We were also delighted that the Minister for Building and Construction and Associate Minister for Housing and Urban Development, Jenny Salesa MP was able to join us for the celebration and to assist our patron, Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier in the burying of the time capsule.

As well as a celebration, it was a great opportunity for our guests to see the work in progress and to visualise the homes they will become to families and individuals in need.
