Working together has allowed us to broaden our reach to meet the needs of our tenants and communities, between us we are able to help alleviate the burden that people are experiencing through the cost of living crisis.


Pooling resources means we can support people in multiple areas at one time, helping to build resilience and long term sustainable change. We will be launching new joint community projects in the New Year”
