Melin Homes celebrated turning 10 with a business breakfast event at Rodney Parade, Newport this week.
We celebrated our 10th birthday with our stakeholders and partners this morning. Peter Crockett opened the event by outlining some of our achievements from the last 10 years.
Melin Homes has supported Street Life Sarnies (SLS) Easter Egg Appeal. The campaign, which is in its third year collects chocolate Easter eggs for homeless outreach teams, family homeless hostels, safehouses and night shelters across Bristol, Newport, Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil.
We've had so much to celebrate lately; our 4000th home, number 37 in the top 100 organisations to work for, award success and now we have been announced as number 16 in the Best Housing Associations to Work For list 2017. This means we have jumped up another four places on our position last year. Best Companies have created the list of the 25 best housing sector organisations to work for based on the views of 6,997 survey respondents.
One of Paula’s first public engagements was meeting Marc Hepton, Operations Manager at Eden Gate and his team of volunteers. His team gives up their own time every week to ensure the centre is open to provide advice, support and hot drinks to homeless people in Newport.
