We strive to provide our tenants with the upmost support and assistance, here are some of the ways we attempt to assist our tenants during the cost-of-living crisis:
Lemon Aid: We offer crucial crisis support through the current Energy Crisis to prevent loss of connection and help to restore energy supply including arranging credit for those on prepayment meters with no funds. In April 2023 we issued £5,220 worth of vouchers to assist tenants with their gas and electricity bills. This service is available to all our residents, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
