How believe housing has implemented a staged approach to the reintroduction of services and a funding boost for a County Durham mental health charity are just some of the stories in the latest issue of believe housing news.
The digital magazine includes important information on when believe housing customers can expect important services like home adaptations to resume as the coronavirus pandemic subsides.
The June issue also features news of how believe housing has helped to make a speedily created project to deliver food to struggling families possible during the lockdown.
Neighbourhood Manager at believe housing, Liz Bradley, said: “We were more than happy to help with vehicles and drivers to carry out the deliveries at a time when so much work normally carried out in our neighbourhoods is just not possible because of social distancing restrictions.
“We’ve also been able to provide £500 through our Coronavirus Crisis Fund to ensure that deliveries will still be able to take place whenever our staff and vehicles do return to their normal roles.”
Other features include a glimpse at the daily life of Gas Engineer Paul Douthwaite who has been working throughout the coronavirus pandemic to ensure the safety of believe housing customers. The magazine also includes full details of the safety measures in place to protect customers when essential work means that believe housing staff have to enter homes.
There’s an update on opportunities for customers to improve their skills and employment prospects during the coronavirus pandemic thanks to a range of free online courses now available too.
And finally there’s news of how believe housing has picked up national accreditation for its work to protect the environment, with plans being formulated to do much more to protect the planet.
