Our customer stories
Using unused sites
Sometimes giving people a happy home means building them brick by brick from scratch.
We're building a mix of 2 and 3 bed affordable homes across several sites in Staffordshire and Cheshire.
“The development is brilliant and it is not happening before time. Some days we would go out and come back to furniture dumped on the site!”
Freda, local resident
From a variety of social events in Staffs Housing's older people's villages, to Revival's befriending scheme, we're bringing people together to create happy communities.
“Before, I was in the house all day and not doing much, it gets a bit depressing. But now I’ve got people coming to see me, it makes it much better. I look forward to the company. We have a chat and a giggle.”
Valerie, Revival customer
Stopping domestic abuse
We work with those responsible for domestic abuse to help them learn how to demonstrate love in a safe and healthy way. Our team provides a range of support to the entire family to look after their safety and wellbeing.
"You have given me a better understand of what domestic violence is. It has taught me better ways to deal with my anger and given me better ways to deal with relationships and arguments."
Kyle, Glow service user
Working with landlords
Homelessness isn't just what you see on the streets.
Concrete's work to tackle homelessness sometimes means supporting those at risk of homelessness.
By working with landlords, our staff helps to mediate and find a solution that works for both landlords and tenants.
"Working with Concrete has been a pleasure, as is having a part to play in helping vulnerable people. The team working with the clients are professional and friendly and keep me as a landlord informed of developments and successes.”
Tom, Victoria Place
