Starts at Home Day – What does it mean?

Friday 30th August 2019 is Starts at Home Day by the National Housing Federation. The day was created as a way to encourage housing associations like us to celebrate supported housing and the positive impact it has on thousands of people’s lives around the country.

Here at North Devon Homes we have 22 supported housing schemes across the area, which house hundreds of customers who all benefit from our support service. Without these schemes those customers wouldn’t be able to live independent lives and would likely end up in care homes or living with great difficulties in housing not suitable to their needs.

Starts at Home Day is important to us as an organisation as we know the work that our support team do has a life changing impact on the customers we help. Below are some videos from a few of our team who talk about the importance of the work we do.
