In June Placeshapers launched its 2018 campaign, #WeCare. Broadland is a proud member of Placeshapers and wholeheartedly supports this thought-provoking work.
Housing associations are not just about homes, but about the people who live in them too. #WeCare shows how PlaceShaper members care for their communities. It uncovers the true scale of the work of housing associations, the breadth of caring services they provide and the impact they’re having on people’s lives, every day.
Take our tenant Paul (above), who has gone from being unemployed to joining our job club. After training with Kate from our Tenancy Support team he has now full-time employment.
The #WeCare campaign launched in Manchester at the Chartered Institute of Housing conference on Tuesday 26 June. Watch this short poem which brings to life the work of housing associations.
Broadland Chief Executive Michael Newey (below) commented:
“PlaceShapers is a network of more than 100 community focused housing associations like us. People are often aware of the homes we provide and are building but less aware of the range of additional services we provide for our residents and the wider community”
