This afternoon the tenant Scrutiny Panel presented 2 cheques to The Wallich.
In November the tenant group were recognised for their project on the Voids Procedure and were named winners of the Pat Chown Award. Community Housing Cymru set up the Award scheme to recognise housing innovation in memory of Pat, who gave a big part of her life to helping others and spent much of her working life helping to meet people’s housing needs in Wales. The award donates £1,000 to the chosen charity of the winner. This year CHC added an additional £1,000 to the donation.
As the Voids Procedure Report focused heavily on how Taff are able to better help those who are entering a property from homelessness it was important to the group that they chose a charity who work directly to tackle homelessness.
