Homeless charity heartbroken after third homeless person dies in space of weeks

The Amethyst Outreach group and Hope Outreach for the Homeless both took to social media yesterday to express their sorrow as a third homeless person has died in Belfast, just within a few weeks of another two deaths.

Police confirmed that the man was found dead on Donegall Street yesterday.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Just last week a rally was held at Belfast City Hall highlighting the homeless problem in the city.

Hope Outreach for the Homeless posted: “It is with a heavy heart we go on outreach tonight, we've had news that an ex service user who was one of the first guys we met, has passed away, a true gentle man who was greatly loved by us all.”

The Amethyst Outreach said: “I can’t believe I am writing this have just been informed another one off our X service users has been found dead tonight just don’t know what else to say at moment.”
