Mr A was referred to our Tenancy Support team at the beginning of the year feeling very low due to his money worries. We were able to provide immediate support, helping him with his debts so he could stay out of the red for good.
Leading housing association VIVID has awarded its final donation in its £125,000 fund for community groups that are helping to support people in need across Hampshire and Berkshire during the coronavirus pandemic – and it has plans to do more to help for the long-term.
VIVID has continued to support Basingstoke Foodbank by providing them with a more permanent base, allowing the foodbank to continue its operations, and meet the increase in demand for its services during this difficult time. The move follows the £24,000 funding and temporary warehouse space provided back in May by VIVID.
Mark Perry, Chief Executive of VIVID said: “We welcome the changes that the government’s Social Housing White Paper sets out and the increased focus on consumer standards, resident engagement and involvement, something many in the sector are already doing."
