A letter to all of our customers - why we are here and what we do
The election of a new Government will bring profound change to us as a Housing Association, and will impact on you as a tenant. Whether you have picked up the impact of the recent budget announcements on social housing or not, or have seen the negative media coverage about Housing Associations, I wanted to be very clear with you about our reason for being here and what we do.
