Our resident group, 100 Voices has donated £3,000 to enable us to support residents who are struggling to feed themselves and their families. Since 1st April this year we have given out £1,650 of financial support for food poverty. This time last year that figure stood at just £80 – highlighting how important this service is to our residents.
We chose our Charity of the year to be St David’s Hospice Care for 2019 and 2020. In these difficult times we wanted to continue our support so we had to think innovatively.
Our money and energy advisors have been helping residents more than ever during this national crisis. That’s why we are proud to support Community Housing Cymru’s campaign #withyou to promote the great work housing associations across Wales are doing to help residents stay safe and secure in their homes.
Together We Can is our new online community art project. In these difficult times, we wanted to create a piece of art that captures what makes people happy.
This Sunday, the 8th March is International Women’s Day, we wanted to celebrate inspirational women living in our communities.We visited Newport to speak with two residents who wanted to share their stories.
