Homeowners in Derry are being given the chance to get expert advice on home improvements while also helping raise funds for charity.

The Architect in the House scheme - which has ran in England for a number of years - is now available in the city for the first time.

Under the scheme, architects from the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) give up their time to offer hour-long consultations to the public in return for a £40 suggested charity donation to specialist housing advice charity, Housing Rights Service (HRS).

Frank McCloskey, Director of the RSUA, says homeowners can gain valuable advice while also helping the local charity.

“Architects in Northern Ireland are delighted to be on board with this successful scheme which benefits homeowners and the local charity, Housing Rights Service.”

“An RSUA chartered architect has the experience to see your project successfully through to completion. So if you have been thinking about making changes to your home, why not take part this year to see how an architect can help you achieve your aspirations and vision.”
