Hull charity bringing derelict properties back to life

Lizzie Rose

BBC Radio Humberside

We're talking about homelessness today and the work that's being done by our local churches to renovate empty properties. 

A local organisation called Giroscope borrows money to buy homes around the Coltman Street and Boulevard areas from banks and mortgage companies who have repossessed property. 

It then renovates them often using disadvantaged people  such as ex-offenders and those unemployed for a long time. 

This then gives them skills to help them get a job in the future.

Their work's being highlighted at a conference in Hull today by a group called Housing Justice.
