Diana came to us for advice during the pandemic last year, after she was reassessed by the DWP and was told that she was no longer entitled to Personal Independence Payment. We helped her to claim the benefits she was entitled to.
In 2020/21, we completed 1,010 new homes, 42% of which were built for social or affordable rent and 319 for shared ownership. It’s been a challenging year and we’re extremely proud of what’s been achieved, helping to give many more people a place to call home.
Through VIVID Plus, we’re investing in tenancy sustainment services, to provide people with tailored, individual support and we’re tackling community led priorities, through place shaping projects and initiatives, to help people feel proud of where they live. We plan to invest £21 million over the next 5 years.
