Your Community

Community Engagement

Do you hold community events?

We usually hold an event once a year and invite all our tenants to come along. This is often as part of our Annual General Meeting and has taken place in local schools or community venues, or in our sheltered schemes. The events include food with an international flavour and don’t be surprised to see steel bands, face painting or bouncy castles!

How do you support other community events?

We provide financial and staff support to other community events, for example the Moss Side Carnival and the Hulme Christmas Lights switch on. In addition we are keen to be involved in projects and events in the communities where we work and provide small sponsorship grants to support events in the community. If you know of an event that might need some help, please contact the office.

Do you fund community groups?

Although money is very tight, we have managed to secure some funding to support community groups and events with small donations (typically around £150). In addition we have committed to providing longer term support and advice to a range of community groups. This can include grants, facilities, equipment and staff support. Some of the groups we have helped include:
