An 140% increase in positive move-on into independent housing for supported tenants, the creation of a tenants’ and participants’ forum, the launch of a project to challenge mental health stigma in Hackney and Islington and the refurbishing and rebranding of Bedford’s Shop as Outpost are among the achievements highlighted in Peter Bedford Housing Association’s Annual Review 2013-14.
The publication reports on PBHA’s progress in six core strategic areas – housing support, independence and inclusion, training and activities, partnerships, team building and challenging stigma and discrimination.
CEO Clare Norton said: ‘2013-14 has been a year of securing our stability and providing security for our tenants and people who use our support services. We have overachieved on our objectives and are well on course to achieve our five-year plan in three years.’
Chairman of the Board Robert Woolf said: ‘At a time of increasing economic pressure, we have secured valuable gains in funding, made better use of our existing income, and achieved improved outcomes with our tenants and participants.’
Launched on 26 September at PBHA’s Annual General Meeting in Dalston, the publication was designed by RF Design.
