Do you dare to be different? 14 March 2019

Published 14 March 2019
Our apprentices are open to anyone and this year we are supporting the Girls in Construction campaign. The campaign shows girls that they can do whatever they want. We are working with schools, offering taster sessions for girls at The Stores, Normanton to show them what is involved and to encourage them to consider a career in construction. Caroline joined WDH as an Apprentice Plumber 12 years ago and enjoys everything about it. The challenges, the variety and the people she gets the opportunity to work with make her job great. Construction isn’t just for men, girls can do it too.  Click here to watch the Girls in Construction video.

Tenants think digital photo guide is brilliant22 February 2019

Published 22 February 2019
Tenants in Lupset have being giving their feedback on a new digital photo guide, created by our Improvements Team to help tenants understand what they can expect when having their homes improved. The guide, which can be shown on an iPad or tablet, will be used by Resident Liaison Officers during the tenant induction process to explain what will happen at every stage of the works and prompt the tenant to ask more questions. This will hopefully lead to a reduction in the number of complaints that are often received at the beginning of a scheme of works.
