"We believe that everyone in Wales should have the opportunity to live in a good quality home within a safe and secure community. To help achieve this aim we published the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (WHQS)." Welsh Government
In 2022/23, Trivallis has received £7.3M in dowry gap funding from the Welsh Government which will be spent on Welsh Housing Quality Standard improvement schemes.
We have a continuous rolling improvement plan, based on home improvement surveys, to improve, renew and maintain our homes for the future.
Each year we create a schedule for planned improvements. This includes:
Internal works (kitchens, bathrooms, re-wires)
Making sure that kitchens and bathrooms are up-to-date and that electrical systems meet modern standards.
Kitchens must be in good condition and there must be sufficient cupboards and enough space for a cooker, washing machine and fridge.
Bathrooms must be no more than 25 years old. As well as upgrading the bathroom furniture, we will fit a shower over the bath.
Re-wiring – The law says that customers must allow us to carry out any work needed to bring wiring up to modern safety standards. We will also fit extra electric sockets (or move existing ones) where required.
We have already fitted modern uPVC doors to thousands of homes and we are continuing to install secure door entry systems in blocks of flats.
The high quality windows and doors help keep you safe and warm in your home.
