Challenge Poverty Week is taking place from 7th to 13th October 2019.

We know that, in order to create strong and thriving communities, we need to provide more than just homes - we need to support our customers' well-being in a range of ways, including financial support and improving digital inclusion.

This will involve:-

  • Ensuring our rents remain affordable by meeting our savings targets and delivering value for money across the organisation.

  • Supporting more of our customers to get online.

  • Supporting our customers to navigate welfare reform, sustain their tenancies and move into employment.

  • Supporting our young people to realise their potential.

  • Working with partners to improve our customers' health and wellbeing.

This week we will use our social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) to provide daily updates to show just some of what we are doing to help address poverty and enable our customers to make their lives better.
