Homeless shelter makes way for Kilburn family hostel

Building was demolished earlier this month

A dilapidated homeless shelter has been knocked down to make way for a modern family friendly hostel.

Conway House, in Quex Road, Kilburn, a refuge for street sleepers since 1974, was demolished early this month.

The new hostel, due for completion in late 2012, will contain single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and family sized homes.

The project, a partnership between Irish Centre Housing and Camden Council, helps the homeless get into permanent housing.
