Housing

As ever, our priority is to meet your safeguarding needs in a way that offers a holistic solution to the present challenges you face in housing provision.   We fully appreciate many of your tenants may be deemed vulnerable as families and so  in need of extra support and that this can bring many safeguarding concerns.  In working with you we are able to weave safeguarding into your housing strategy and business plans.

We’ve heaps of practice in communicating effectively with employees of housing providers ranging from Customer Services Managers, Housing Officers, Quality Assurance Officers, Surveyors, Area Housing Managers, Portfolio Managers, Personnel, Repairs, Environmental Services Staff, Housing Support Staff and workers in Sheltered Schemes.
