What our clients say

I have recently taken over as team leader for one of your schemes and just wanted to give some feed back on one of your Housing officers Caroline Mathews, I have had numerous of phone calls / emails with Caroline in regards to the scheme as we have quite a lot going on at the present time and I would just like to say how compassionate, caring and professional Caroline has been with Myself, staff and the service users, any issues at the scheme has had has been dealt with immediately and resolved.

Caroline visited the scheme today to support me to discuss an upcoming eviction with one of our service users, while she was here Caroline spent time looking around the service and meeting the service users, I discussed with Caroline about possible ideas for the service and Caroline was extremely enthusiastic about the ideas and advised she would explore these and get back to me.

Sham and Manny, Directors at Birmingham Supported Housing

She always communicates with myself and the staff team on a professional and personable basis. Over the last 12 months we have experienced some difficult individuals moving into the properties, however Nichola always works with ourselves pro-actively and for the need of the individuals we support.

Regarding referrals again Nichola respects the staff team’s judgement when the individual’s are moving in, giving them ample time to settle into their new surroundings.

I feel we work well as a multi-disciplinary team. Great stuff.
