A new community wellbeing project launched in Bolton has been praised after winning a top health award.
The ‘Peer Navigators’ project has seen us employ Bolton at Home tenants to work in their community, helping neighbours access support to make positive changes and live healthier lives.
You can now make your nomination for our Stars of the community awards. Do you know an individual or a group who has made a difference in their community? Or who has gone out of their way to help others?
We are changing our approach to our seasonal publications. This includes making Door to Door a digital publication and introducing a tailored newsletter for customers who live in Bolton at Home sheltered and extra care housing. This Q&A explains what we’re doing and why.
Bolton at Home employees have raised £4,500 for Bolton Hospice. Throughout the year, employees give donations for sweets and snacks stocked by colleagues.
Representatives from Bolton at Home visited the hospice to hand over this year’s donation and get an insight into how it will help fund the care it provides.
There was a large fire overnight in a warehouse in Little Hulton (Thursday 15 November), which has affected the area.
From April 2019, and where it is appropriate, we will require some customers to pay an increased estate maintenance charge and some to pay a new service charge to cover the cost of lighting in communal areas. We are writing to customers this week (12 - 17 November) to explain these plans to introduce some further charges and to get feedback on the impact this might have. We are tailoring the letters to people’s circumstances and properties. This Q&A explains more.
Bolton at Home has been officially recognised as a Living Wage employer at an event marking the start of Living Wage Week.
