Extra Care scheme in Gateshead scoops Koast FM community award
The community spirit at Housing 21’s Priory Court in Gateshead has received an award in Koast Radio’s Community Awards.
A key element of our service is the on-site Local Housing Manager who is there to ensure the scheme runs smoothly day to day. Our Local Housing Managers are an integral part of life at our schemes, they are on hand to help by organising any necessary repair work with tradespeople and to liaise with contractors, but also create and foster communities by organising social events and activities for residents, provide a listening ear, and signpost to services.
Care work at Housing 21 is extremely rewarding and provides opportunities to develop through a person-centred organisation. We are committed to ensuring all Care Workers are paid at least 10 percent above the National Living Wage, are offered guaranteed hours and receive benefits in line with corporate employees.
We’re proud of our role in providing older people of modest means with good quality housing and care. Our award wins and shortlistings show that others believe we are doing a great job too!
