SOCIAL PROGRAMME

The Association runs an eclectic social programme, providing subsidised trips to many places of interest around the UK, and offering events and activities in London. We have taken our residents to Bath, Brighton, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Oxford and Stratford. We regularly book tickets for West End and fringe theatre and have visited museums and exhibitions, and football matches.

The programme provides our residents with opportunities to meet socially, and enjoy some of the many experiences that the UK and London have to offer, at a reduced cost. Adults pay a reduced fee for events, while children often participate free of charge. We are conscious of the fact that most of our residents are on limited budgets, and the subsidy provides an opportunity for them to get the most out of their overseas experience. It is rare for a housing association to have this type of programme, and we are justifiably proud of it.
