feedEvery day, our tenants and staff make a
real difference to their community. Here
are just three recent examples:
Four of our staff will be taking part in the Sahara Trek
Challenge to raise money for the Lincolnshire and
Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
The trek takes place between 28 September and 6 October,
and will see 25 people spend five days trekking 100km
through the largest desert in the world. The group
will have to endure very basic living and extremely tough
conditions for the whole trip.
Sarah Withers, Housing Officer, commented: "I want to
push myself and to complete a challenge which will take me
out of my comfort zone. The Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance
relies on donations to do the amazing work that they do,
and so we want to help them."
To donate, visit
Lindsey Lodge Hospice
We are working in partnership with Lindsey Lodge Hospice
and British Steel to design and create a memorial garden.
British Steel donated almost £25k for the project, and we
have been brought in to provide the design and materials
which our staff and volunteers will do free of charge.
The garden will give residents and their families a peaceful
outside space to enjoy, and will give bereaved families the
opportunity to remember loved ones.
Andy McFadden, Neighbourhood Services Team Leader,
said: "We were totally honoured to be asked to help with
"We know the amazing work Lindsey Lodge Hospice does,
and many of our staff have experienced it first-hand.
"It's great that we can give something back."
Sahara Trek team
Tenant Inspectors have helped to influence another positive
outcome in the local community.
The group carry out regular inspections on neighbourhoods,
green spaces, empty homes, high-rises and retirement
living schemes. They identify how effective a service is and
whether they need improving, ensuring that these services are
delivered in the best way.
A recent inspection highlighted some issues regarding antisocial
behaviour, possible homelessness and fly-tipping in the
Earls, Talbot and Beauchamp Walk area.
As a result, the Housing Officer
and a Police Community Support
Officer (PCSO) visited the
neighbourhoods to listen to
residents' concerns, and to put
improvement plans in place.
Brighter lighting has been
introduced and signs have
been fitted to help combat litter.
So far, this has proven successful.
