“Where we live has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. We want to build communities where our tenants can live well in their homes and in the area around them." - Lisa Pinney, Executive Director of Resources and Innovation
Being a great landlord is also about helping people live well in their homes.
From supporting tenants who are hoarding to delivering home adaptations that help people live independently for longer, we’ve been helping people live well at home.
This year we made over 400 improvements to our tenants homes.
This has included everything from a simple hand rail or ramp, to a full renovation that has allowed tenants to stay in their homes while their access needs change over time.

Our Fire Safety Team have collaborated to ensure we can conduct more fire safety checks to protect our vulnerable tenants.
Find out how they worked with our STEPS Team to increase our Person-Centred Fire Risk Assessments: Trivallis Teams collaborate to improve tenant safety – Trivallis
Increased Person-Centred Fire Risk Assessments allowed us to identify more vulnerable tenants with additional fire safety needs.

MAGPIE is an enhanced hoarding support service, delivered on behalf of RCTCBC. We provide specialised support to manage hoarding behaviours and help individuals to understand thoughts, feelings and behaviours towards belongings. We then use this understanding to motivate tenants to organise and remove items.
