Our latest community event took place at the Green Man Lane estate and provided the opportunity for customers to speak with experts about local issues and the various support services available to them.

Our community investment team put on many of these events throughout the year, which see teams from across the business come together to make a positive difference.

More than 40 residents dropped-by during the four-hour session on Thursday 4 April, with our partners from Pyramid Plus on hand to complete more than a dozen same-day repairs, and a team from Chequers were available to remove any unwanted bulk items.

Tenancy sustainment officers gave advice on money management, while employment advisers were able to help those looking for employment or opportunities to maximise their income.

An arts and craft session also took place for young children, with colouring and plant potting to keep them entertained during half-term break.

A2Dominion customer Hannah has lived on the Green Man Lane estate for around 20 years and was delighted with the support she received on the day. Pyramid Plus staff inspected a suspected case of damp in her bedroom, while a removals team disposed of her unwanted chest of draws.

She said: “I’ve lived at Green Man Lane for a long time. There are a lot of neighbours that I know for the last 20 years, some of them have become good friends.

“The session today was really good, I came for a repair and that has been raised and they came to see me in 15 minutes, so I am glad.

“It’s really useful to have these sessions because I didn’t have time to arrange for two jobs to be done, but coming along today means I can get both of them done at the same time.”

In 2022/23 our community investment team spent £1.3m on community investment activities, supporting more than 5,800 people.
