Home Provider in new initiative to support veteransPublished: Friday 7 May 2021
A County Durham housing association is launching a new partnership with a leading employer of former armed services personnel after a successful pilot scheme.
Seaham-based believe housing has teamed up with AAA Caring Caretakers to work on preparing homes for new customers. Nearly 80% of AAA Caring Caretakers employees are veterans and the organisation has a strong policy of supporting both ex forces personnel and their spouses into work.
The new collaboration is expected to provide direct employment for five veterans and two spouses of serving forces personnel. They will be working right across believe housing’s 18,000 homes, which stretch from the County Durham coast to the rural north Pennines.
The partnership comes after a pilot where veterans from the AAA team prepared more than 50 properties across County Durham for new believe housing tenants. Click here to view the full article.
