We Really Do Care

We took part in this year's We Care Day on Friday 14th September, where our hard-working staff purchased and collected food to deliver to our local Food Bank. 

Through this, we pledged 20 hours to the PlaceShapers Care-ometer. This is part of almost 2000 hours pledged by PlaceShapers – a network of more than 100 community-focused housing associations - around the country.

Kim Derry, Communications Manager at Mount Green, said, “We are much more than a landlord. We have homes that people can afford but also provide services that build communities. We Care is an opportunity for us to highlight the difference that these services make and also for our staff to use their own volunteer time to do even more to help our residents. It’s been amazing to see all our staff coming together and really going the extra mile to help our local communities.”

PlaceShapers' Chair, Sinéad Butters, said, “Up and down the country We Care Day focuses on the rich diversity of ways that our members care for people and communities. Whilst we take great care in providing high-quality homes that are safe and well maintained, we also focus on the people who live in them, working with them and our wider partners to ensure we provide what’s needed. We Care shows what this means on a day-to-day basis.”

Thanks to all our staff members who donated and gave up their time to collect food for this very worthy cause.
