We’re proud to be part of the National Housing Federation’s Starts at Home campaign.
Aiming to highlight the great benefits of supported housing, the campaign aims to ensure a Government commitment that everyone can have a home that meets their unique needs.
We take our responsibilities as a landlord extremely seriously, ensuring customers have access to the correct support and care to successfully maintain their tenancies and provide a platform to help people better themselves.
Our Enhanced Housing Management team look after 1,000 of our residents living in 900 properties on our 24 sheltered-schemes. Our Visiting Support co-ordinators ensure customers who need extra support are signposted to the right places, whilst our Enhanced Housing Management co-ordinators help customers manage their tenancies correctly, and alert the Visiting Supporting Team if extra support is required.
We’re committed to ensuring this type of supported housing continues, as without the support of the team, there is a real danger vulnerable customers would go unnoticed.
“It’s not just bricks and mortar we work with at CHP, we want to help people maintain successful tenancies and live independently in their own home for as long as possible,” said Kay Caldwell, CHP’s Director of Housing.
Over 400,000 people across the country live in supported housing, which includes sheltered accommodation, refuges for women fleeing domestic violence and adults with disabilities.
David Orr, Chief Executive at the National Housing Federation said: “Supported housing is vital to providing independence, security, and dignity for millions of people across the country, and it’s not talked about enough. We hope this campaign will celebrate the good work done by so many in the supported housing sector, and show the Government why it’s such a crucial part of the housing fabric.”
