Our story
“We’ve been working in partnership with King’s Arms Project, a not-for-profit organisation who have provided housing and support for the homeless since 1989.
“We’ve provided accommodation and worked with KAP to ensure the homes were decorated and ready for families to move in.
“We’ve made sure that there are translation services for the new families, so they can fully understand and ask any questions about their tenancy, rights, and responsibilities.
“Our community investment team has helped families gain employment, take English classes and linked in with local churches and community groups to enable integration into the community.”
