Benefits of attending

It’s ever more important that social housing providers understand the difficulties that residents have experienced in the past or likely to experience in the future. It is in our interest to work with our residents and see what part we can play to make things easier. We want to keep as many of our residents in their homes as possible and want fewer people to be struggling. At MTVH, we are focussed on building relationships of trust with our residents in order that we can genuinely understand what we can do empower them to live well. Every one of our residents is different and we should not assume that we have the answers to the things that is making life difficult for them. We need to take their lead and start working with them on the things that are most important to them.

We can give them some breathing and head space to start thinking about longer term activities that they identify is important for them to shift from survival to living well
