National Lottery Support for Aylesbury Residents
Tuesday 12th March 2019
Creation is delighted to announce that we are one of the 2,250 community projects to receive a share of over £65 million of #NationalLottery funding!
Our project is aimed at supporting residents who are living on the Aylesbury estate, particularly those people who have been placed here in Temporary Accommodation.
The money will be spent on new members of staff, who will help residents to manage their housing, benefits and family issues. Whatever they need to make life happier and improve wellbeing. We are using the funding to employ a new caseworker, a specialist benefits advice worker and a project worker to put on family events and activities at the Giraffe House.
We know that life in Temporary accommodation can be challenging, this National Lottery money, will help us support temporary tenants to feel part of the community, get the same level of support for job search, debt advice and housing issues that secure tenants receive, get orientated in the area quickly and ultimately to find a permanent place for them to call home.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, this funding makes such a fantastic difference to local people.
