A special housing open day was hosted at Anchor’s Riverview House retirement housing scheme in Benwell today to help raise awareness of the range of social housing opportunities available in the local area.

The open day was organised by Anchor for Your Homes Newcastle customers who currently live in bungalows due to be demolished as part of a regeneration programme within the local area.

Scheme managers from local Anchor retirement properties came along to provide information and answer questions about the alternative housing options Anchor can provide.

Attendees were shown around Riverview House and able to see the type of retirement apartments available with Anchor.

Steve Freed, Your Homes Newcastle Lead Housing Support Officer, felt the day was really beneficial, commenting: “This was a really useful day for people currently living with us looking to be rehoused.”
David Wood, Anchor’s Community Partnership Manager for the North East said: “This has been a great open day, arranged specifically for Your Homes Newcastle tenants who are looking to be rehoused. 

“Attendees were really impressed with Riverview House and the options Anchor can provide, many were surprised by how modern and friendly our properties are. 

“We are confident the attendees benefitted from receiving information about our housing options and we look forward to rehousing those who are interested in moving to Anchor properties.”
