Today is Starts at Home Day – the day for everyone involved in supported housing to celebrate the positive impact it makes on thousands of lives.
At Together Housing, we have a lot of reasons to join in the national celebrations. We are so proud of our supported housing service. Thanks to our fantastic team who make it all happen, we provide great homes together with much needed support to help people manage in so many different ways.
From those who need a temporary home or a place of safety, with help to get their lives back on track. To adults with learning disabilities who need a helping hand to manage everyday life. And older people who need a safe and supportive place to call home, with the help they need to keep their independence.
It’s always true to say that there is never a dull day in supported housing but never more so than over the last 18 months. It’s been tough, but due to the huge effort of our team including the support of so many others in the wider Together team and our care and support partners, we really have played a massive part in helping keep some of our most vulnerable residents safe.
Our supported housing team and care and support partners always put the safety and wellbeing of our residents first and with such kindness, care and compassion. We are so proud of you all! Thanks to your dedication, resilience and commitment, we kept our schemes running, kept our schemes safe and kept everyone’s spirts up. At times, it felt like there wasn’t any light at the end of the tunnel. Although you were pretty exhausted, you just kept going for our residents.
We are still in tricky times, but thankfully there is now some hope ahead. What is so great is hearing the team talking about the absolute joy of residents being able to get back together and that community spirit coming back into the heart of our schemes.
Stay safe. Stay hopeful. Stay brilliant.
