Our Tenancy Sustainment team continue to do fantastic work helping our tenants. Over the last financial year they helped 909 tenants gain an additional £930,188 in income. This is a massive achievement, particularly given the challenging nature of the working environment over the last year and a half.
There has been an increase in demand for the team this year, largely because of the pandemic and the financial challenges this has brought to many of our tenants.
The team have helped complete benefit claims, given advice on benefits and provided budgeting advice. Furniture and charity grants were applied for, food bank vouchers were given out and support was provided in other areas where tenants need a little more support to manage their tenancy. Tenants with school age children were also encouraged to apply for free school meals and clothing grants, which helped significantly with the increased costs of having children at home over the last year.
If you think you’d benefit from the outstanding advice and support on offer from our Tenancy Sustainment team then please get in touch.
