Starts at Home
In August last year, we joined in celebrating the fourth Starts at Home Day. This National Housing Federation event sees hundreds of housing association staff and tenants from across the country showcase the value of supported housing.
In 2019, THA had a number of events of varying sizes running across its sheltered housing schemes with the largest taking place at Peter Kennedy Court, Croydon. This well attended event saw tenants coming together to enjoy each others company and refreshments whilst sharing their stories of why sheltered housing mattered to them.
Kevin Turner, Housing Services Director who attended the event on the day and shared in the tenant’s stories said, “The Starts at Home event is a great reminder of the excellent work and support offered by supported housing such as this. It’s been humbling to hear of the difference that we have been able to make to some peoples lives by offering them a home and it’s inspiring to see the positive changes this type of housing can and does have on people.”
Some tenants from the scheme who shared their stories are featured on the Starts at Home website and their stories can be found by visiting:
We're already looking forward to the next Starts at Home Day, which will take place on 28 August 2020. For more information, please speak to your Housing Manager.
