South Staffordshire Housing Association (SSHA), part of The Housing Plus Group, has appointed Laura Evans to its Neighbourhood Management Team.
Director of neighbourhood services of SSHA, Adrian Eggington, said: "We set up our neighbourhood management team to deliver high quality services on our estates and to work with individuals and communities to find solutions to local issues. As a local housing association we see ourselves and our staff as community based and so our neighbourhood team spend about four days a week there. Residents can talk to them about any housing issue, from grounds maintenance queries to how they can pay their rent or deal with noise or rubbish."
Commenting on her appointment, Laura said: "I am delighted to join this team. I really like meeting the residents face to face and being able to deal with their issues then and there. Over the coming weeks, my key task is to get people involved in ways to improve their neighbourhood. It’s up to the tenants to tell me what they want to see happen, so I am looking forward to hearing from everyone."
Prior to joining SSHA, Laura who lives in Shrewsbury, was a trainee development officer with South Shropshire HA.
