Mobile office helps SARH staff to visit customers
A STAFFORD housing association is hitting the road to give help and advice to customers.
Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) have invested in a new mobile office which will attend community events across the year throughout Stafford Borough giving customers the chance to chat to SARH staff or pick up promotional material about services the organisation offers.
SARH will also work with other partner organisations from the mobile office by attending consultation events and holding surgeries.
“The idea of the mobile office is to get out to customers who can’t easily visit our main office or Stafford Shop in Greyfriars, particularly those living in the more rural areas outside of the town centre,” said Chris Plant, Community Involvement Manager for SARH.
“It will help provide access to information about the services we can provide and the help and support we can offer.”
To help get the new mobile office noticed SARH held a competition asking the children at Sir Graham Balfour School to design some eye-catching artwork for the back of the vehicle. The winning design was created by 14-year-old Anastasia Nelson.
Inside the mobile office is a seating area and an awning on one side provides extra space so that meetings and discussions can take place whatever the weather.
“Working directly with our local communities is an important part of our efforts to make Stafford Borough a great place to live. Our new mobile office will help us to get out and meet local people to help make a difference to their lives and improve their neighbourhoods,” said Karen Armitage, Chief Executive of SARH.
