Published 30 August 2017

WDH has welcomed the first tenants to their latest HomeBuilder development. The development on Bevin Close in Outwood, is a mixture of two and three bed homes with some for rent and some for sale through Shared Ownership.

The completion of the five new properties marks 100 new build properties completed by WDH’s HomeBuilder Team of skilled tradespeople.

Lauren Gardner, and her son J’vae have just moved into the 100th property and were presented with some welcome gifts by Alan Poxon, WDH’s Senior Project Officer and Pervez Khaliq, WDH’s Project Officer.

Lauren said: “I am absolutely over the moon. The house is amazing, I love it! The area is lovely and quiet and it’s great to finally have a garden for J’vae. I can’t wait to finish making it our own.”

Alan Poxon, WDH’s Senior Project Officer, said:  “We remain one of very few social landlords delivering new properties using the skills of our own workforce, and we are extremely proud of the workmanship at Bevin Close.”

Lucky Care Link customer wins survey spoils

Published 17 May 2016

A lucky Care Link customer has won £50 worth of Sainsbury’s vouchers after being randomly selected from 880 people who completed the service’s 2016 customer satisfaction survey.

Grace Young, 90, from South Elmsall was recently presented with the prize at her home, where she informed the Care Link team that she’d never won anything like it before!

Speaking about the service she said she is “highly satisfied and very happy” with being able to call whenever she needs help. Miss Young has Care Link’s standard package, which comes with 24 hour monitoring, alarm unit installation, key contact notification and a pendant alarm.

Miss Young says she takes her pendant alarm with her everywhere she goes, saying: “I never leave it behind. Care Link definitely gives me peace of mind.”

 The 24 hour Care Link service supports people of all ages and helps them stay independent in their own home. The service utilises a range of alarms and sensors using telecare technology in the home, and allows people to create a bespoke support package to suit individual needs, whether that be a responders or a home visiting service.
