South Western Housing Society’s vision is to deliver more, in all aspects of housing, and for people who are not able to access the general market.
As part of this commitment, the staff team came together to plan and organise a ‘Giving Back’ day at the Weston Super Mare Night Assessment Centre (NAC); a project that delivers vital support to people who are street homeless.
The Society have previously chosen the (NAC) as its charity to donate monies collected from its “dress down day”. This year the Society, with support from our contractor partners; Jones Building Group, Dale Building Maintenance, E G Carter & Co and Gregor Heating, upgraded the existing shower room, installed new shelving, provided lockable cupboards and painted the sleeping area. These works were completed in time for the NAC’s first birthday.
Liona, an NAC staff member fed back a ‘thank you so much for the shower!!!! What a difference it made to our clients last night! I think we will have to allocate times from now on as it was difficult getting them out last night! Thank you so much, I and the clients really do appreciate everything you have done.’
Kimberley Clay, PR Coordinator at E G Carter & Co Ltd said “We are delighted to support South Western Housing Society with their ‘Staff Giving Back Day’ It is important to us as a Company to support our clients and we look forward to seeing how the new lease of life at the Night Assessment Centre in Weston-Super-Mare will make a difference to the community.”
