Hagan Homes will present £100,000 to the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) over a four-year period to ensure NI children have a greater opportunity to be educated together.

A passion of Hagan Homes Chair and Founder, James Hagan, the IEF has, for over 30 years, campaigned to promote integrated education here – helping create 65 integrated educational settings with parents awaiting decisions on a further eight. Inspired by the charity’s efforts and drive over those years, James has been supporting the IEF for two decades.

Speaking about the donation, James said, “I have always been an advocate of integrated education here. I think it is wrong to divide children according to their religious backgrounds and the impact of that division can have financial and societal implications on not just in our immediate future but for generations to come.

“It is a pleasure to be in a position to support the IEF and we do it because at Hagan Homes we believe in cohesive neighbourhoods.”
