Thank you to all the sheltered housing customers who took part in the consultation on reopening communal lounges.
During the lockdown period, we closed all our communal lounges for the safety of customers and Selwood Housing staff. As part of our restarting services programme we want to trial opening the lounges at three schemes for one morning a week, following the relevant government guidance.
We spoke to 66 Sheltered Housing customers across the three sheltered schemes. There was a clear difference of opinion across our schemes, we have taken this into account in our decision-making process.
We have taken the decision to proceed in two of the three schemes where there was a clear majority in favour of reopening. One scheme will remain closed for the time being, we have written to this scheme to explain this.
