We’re launching the Community Investment Report 2022-23, Communities Together, showcasing the breadth of services we and partners are providing to support our customers.
Every year, we invest £1.7m into our community investment programme to support local communities with projects such as financial and wellbeing support.
We also help people with work, employment and training opportunities, and invest £570,000 each year into our tenancy sustainment service, supporting residents who are experiencing financial difficulties.
You can watch this short video to see the key achievements over the last year.
We’ve also published our 2023 Community Investment plan. The plan sets out our ambition to work with customers and partners to deliver social impact in our communities.
Underpinning our work are our new corporate objectives which shape the Community Investment offer to customers and our three main aims.
1. Cost of Living and Financial Capability
2. Health and Wellbeing
3. Strengthening Communities
Dawn Wightman, Director of Homes and Communities said “We recognise that the cost-of-living increases have made this a challenging year for many of our customers.
“This year we have seen an increase in funding and participation across all our community and support services.
“Our colleagues, partners and customers have really come together to improve customers’ homes and the communities we work in.
“The fantastic achievements highlighted in this report reflect the hard work and dedication of our staff and partners.”
