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).

Janet Hunter, Housing Rights Service Director said: “This unique campaign will help local people improve their homes and enable Housing Rights Service to provide vital housing advice.”
