A big welcome to Emma Greeley who started with Hollywell in June as our Tenant Support Coordinator! Emma will be carrying out our Tenancy Clinic visits and dealing with the day to day tenancy support needs of our residents. Emma is settling in well and is building some great relationships with our vulnerable tenants across Devon and Cornwall.
Our Big Lottery funded ‘What Makes a Home?’ workshops were a great success! Here are some photos from our group in South Moulton during a very interactive (and sticky!) session last week!
We travelled up to North Devon to meet a lovely group of people – Alexis, Ben, Nicole, Emma, Kirsty and Terry – who were kind enough to spend some time with us telling us what their perfect home looks like. They all live independently and were keen to share with us the challenges and fun parts of living on their own.
We wanted to find out what their advice would be to someone looking to live on their own for the first time and the answers varied from “making sure you have the right support” to “making sure you’re near the football ground”! We wanted to try and gather their thoughts to influence the way we are modelling our services but also to give new tenants a real life view of what living on your own might feel like.
