Housing association opens its doors to stakeholders
A Staffordshire housing association has invited its key stakeholders to play a pivotal role in shaping its future.
Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) recently held a special event to enable customers, civic leaders, community groups and representatives from other private and public sector organisations to find out more about its plans.
Karen Armitage, SARH Chief Executive, held a series of briefing sessions throughout the day.
“As the organisation continues to grow and we strengthen our position as the area’s leading provider of housing services we wanted to share our plans with stakeholders and, at the same time, gather feedback on the things we do now,” she explained.
“The event enabled us to showcase some ambitious housing projects currently underway – including a scheme to create 45 apartments in Foregate Street, Stafford – and the work we are doing to help customers manage their finances effectively.”
Other initiatives discussed at the event included plans to connect more customers to get online.
“As we shape our corporate plan, it’s important that the people we serve and those with a stake in what we do have a say in the future of the organisation and I’m delighted so many people were keen to join in the discussion,” Karen added.
