Spotlight Autumn 2016
As you may have read on our website and elsewhere,
we are no longer merging with Thames Valley Housing, and will
remain as Genesis Housing Association for the time being. The
decision not to go ahead with the planned merger was made at the
end of August for a number of reasons, and you can find out more about this.
As we look to the future and our plans going forward, we also
look to the past as we pay our respects to Ken Start, one of the
founders of Springboard (that later became part of Genesis), who
sadly passed away this year. Neil Hadden
shares his memories of Ken.
We have continued to work hard this year to offer the best
possible service and I’m delighted to say that our customer service is improving according to
feedback surveys we have carried out. Our achievements include
making an estate in East London safer for
the residents that live there, successfully prosecuting a resident in Redbridge for tenancy
fraud and funding a GoodGym
initiative in Essex.
We are also assisting the mass
regeneration of Hammersmith and Fulham by building 605 much-needed
new homes in Old Oak, West London.
Finally, don’t miss hearing about Sir
David Attenborough’s visit to a new wildlife centre that has
opened at Woodberry Down, one of our major regeneration sites
We hope you enjoy reading this edition.
