Supporting Residents and Communities
At Peabody we are stepping up our social responsibility within our communities during this challenging time to best support everyone connected with Peabody. Take a look at some of the recent changes we have made to support our residents and communities:
New Resident Well-Being Team & Support Website
We have created a new "Resident Well-Being Team" who we will be working with local partners and services to support where it’s needed the most. This ranges from food deliveries for our more vulnerable residents or 1-1 advice and guidance on rental queries from our tenants. As well as this we’ve also launched a new website PeabodyPeople.org with useful information and contacts surrounding our support for Coronavirus (COVID-19), available to access 24/7.
We understand in a time like this it can be extra hard when you live alone, some of the services we are offering for those self-isolating are helping to deliver essential food supplies and medicine. If you are or know any Peabody residents in need of these services, you can get in touch with us through the website and by calling us on 0300 123 3456.
Our new website is also providing well-being resources, home schooling tips and links from local services and the latest government advice, to keep you as informed as possible or at least point you in the right direction to find out more.View Peabody People Support Website
Repairs & Communal Area Cleaning
We are doing everything we can to reduce the impact on all of our vital services our residents receive from us, however this also means we are prioritising essential repairs and visits to our most vulnerable residents.
As well as repairs and visits on top of their regular duties, Peabody caretakers are making sure that their communities are as safe as possible by sterilising high use areas such as door handles, push plates and lift buttons, ensuring residents are as safe as possible within their home.Visit PEABODY.ORG
