Care & Repair crowned winners!
We’re proud to announce that our BCH Care & Repair team were crowned winners of the Foundations Independent Living Trust award at the National Healthy Housing Awards held earlier this month. Members of the team travelled down to Westminster to receive their award at the first ceremony of its kind, which celebrates work across the country by local authorities, social landlords and charitable organisations to support vulnerable people to live independently.
The award is testament to their commitment to going the extra mile to ensure Blackpool’s elderly, vulnerable and people with disabilities are able to remain independent in their homes. Working closely with health providers, hospitals, GPs they support a person’s health and wellbeing by making their homes safe, affordable and warm. Dedication, teamwork and support in numbers is what was said to have shone through for the Board of Foundations Independent Living Trust.
A fantastic part of this is the phenomenal amount of charitable funding our Caseworkers secure for residents in dire need, this vital funding is used to transform dilapidated properties that don’t meet the households needs and impact significantly on their health and finances.
We’re extremely proud of the team’s dedication to making a difference and this outstanding achievement.
