Fabulous feedback from supported housing residents
14 Jun 2018
More than half of the 464 residents living in our supported accommodation responded to our satisfaction survey (54%) - and the results were overwhelmingly positive.
Responses to the question about achievements to help show the type of issues residents are facing, and how the stability of their supported housing is helping them to move forward. Here are some examples.
