Novus partners with Tpas and Home Group to tackle social housing stigma

We’ve recently teamed up with Tpas and Home Group to support their Life Swap sessions in Leeds, as part of our ongoing commitment to equality and diversity.

The workshops are designed to break down the barriers some people experience when living in social housing, by allowing them to share their stories and experiences with individuals from different backgrounds.

You can find out more about the social housing services we offer, including planned maintenance here.

Many social landlords are focused on tackling stigma following the release of the Government’s social housing green paper (A New Deal for Social Housing) which highlighted the issue. The green paper is available on the Government website here.

As part of the sessions, which we sponsored and took part in, housing associations will learn to better understand the different needs of individuals within their communities, develop a cohesive approach to helping vulnerable residents and tackle the stigma attached to certain groups as a result.

We’ve long been committed to the principle of giving back to our communities, whether through holding resident workshops, helping vulnerable tenants out in their day-to-day lives or through our recent Novus Big Five initiative, which saw us give five worthy causes a £20,000 refurbishment project. You can check out one of our recent refurbishment projects here.

Kevin Rhone, head of social value and customer services at Novus, said: “When the opportunity came along to sponsor the Life Swap initiative, we couldn’t wait to get started.
