East Belfast Mission 

Renewal and Transformation of the East Belfast Community 
At East Belfast Mission we work with everyone in our community to improve their spiritual and physical well being. The pages on our web site reflect the many areas of life in East Belfast in which we work with the local community. As a "not for profit" organisation we run many fund raising activities to support our community work. This work includes helping the Homeless in our Hosford project, our child care facility in Bright Sparks, our Skill and Social Enterprise Hub which helps people back to work and sometimes fitness and of course our thriving Church and Community which delivers pastoral care. 
We are based in the Skainos Centre on the Newtownards Road. The Skainos Project is an urban regeneration project in inner East Belfast providing shared space for community transformation and renewal. Central to the development is a new street in inner East Belfast, untouched by the history of the Troubles, with the capacity to be genuinely shared space. This civic square is capable of hosting open air events like concerts, farmers' markets and Christmas fairs and is overlooked by new, mixed tenure housing, thereby giving the square a living presence round the clock. 
We have won many awards across several projects. Click here to see what we have achieved. 
The Newtownards Road frontage of the development features new retail and commercial office space. Inside, and fronting to the square is the work of East Belfast Mission including youth and family services and counselling as well as a community hall and auditorium, and a cafe which spills onto the square. 
Care Counselling is a Church and Community Outreach programme of East Belfast Mission. To learn more please click here to go to the page where you can find out how to access counselling. There are also details of other organisations who you may wish to contact for help.

Gerry Armstrong is the new ambassador for Street League 

Former Northern Ireland International football legend Gerry Armstrong was announced as the new ambassador for homeless charity Street Soccer NI. Gerry attended a recent Street Soccer event to hand out International Caps to previous Homeless World Cup players who represented their country in the last three Homeless World Cups. Street Soccer NI, in partnership with East Belfast Mission, the Housing Executive, Simon Community and IFA, run projects across NI using the power of football to transform the lives of people who are homeless and other disadvantaged groups. Alongside the football they offer support in housing, employability, and other issues that affect their players.
