#BigHousingThankyou is a celebration of the unsung heroes working to ensure residents remain safe and well during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since the lockdown began, Sanctuary Housing staff have been doing all they can to protect the wellbeing of our residents, often going the extra mile on a daily basis.
Housing officers, call centre operatives, maintenance workers and many other employees have volunteered time on top of their usual tasks to help at this time.
They have taken on a number of emergency roles, including shopping for the vulnerable, delivering prescriptions and supervising shelters for rough sleepers. They have done all this while still sorting repairs, caring for communal spaces, giving advice and helping customers cope with this crisis.
Below are just a few examples of their efforts, for which we say a #BigHousingThankyou
Supporting residents with wellbeing calls and food parcels
Thousands of wellbeing calls made to residents, as well as more than 100 food parcels distributed so far across England.
