The building operates as a sheltered housing scheme and is occupied by elderly and vulnerable tenants. Due to this, it was agreed that during the works our Community Liaison Officer, Josie Bowden, would visit Rawon’s Court to carry out weekly activities with the residents for added social value to distract them from the louder building works and to also allow them the opportunity to liaise with Josie about the project.
One of the areas of concern highlighted during these weekly sessions by the residents was that the lounge area looked very tired and in need of a little TLC. Josie fed this back to management and it was then agreed to have the lounge area decorated as a goodwill gesture. It also allowed us to give a little back to the residents for any inconvenience caused by the work. This is in line with our social values policy whereby we aim to give something back to the communities in the vicinity of our works.
