Promoting relationships within local communities
Across Anchor all of our housing properties and care homes strive to promote relationships between our residents and the communities they live in.
We are committed to promoting community initiatives with local services and fostering positive relationships with key health and care professionals.
We develop strong relationships with local groups which both bring people to visit our properties, and offer residents with opportunities to go out, meet new people and take part in new experiences.
We also look to build relationships with organisations and local companies that can raise awareness of our services within the community, tackling isolation and ensuring older people know the housing and care options we can offer them.
