Jenny Williams, Habitat’s chief executive, said: “We are excited about the opportunity to bring Habitat ReStore to the north-west.

"Every year more than 100,000 local people access low-cost materials to improve their homes at ReStore and it is a hub for other local programmes, including House to Home which provides practical support for vulnerable people.

“As we plan for the launch, pending planning permission, we look forward to working in partnership with companies, churches, community organisations and individuals to serve local people through ReStore.”

Habitat for Humanity also confirmed that ReStore Lisnagelvin is ‘expected to open later this year and will deliver real impact for local people and the wider community in Derry-Londonderry’.
