Housing Lifeline Opens Its Doors

INDIVIDUALS and families looking for low cost local housing are invited to an advisory open day on 26 August 2015, between 1pm to 4pm at Riverside housing association's Eton Court in Southport.

Riverside's Income Management Advisors and ancillary support services will provide information and advice, at the scheme on Park West Road in Southport. Staff, volunteers and customers at the scheme will be on hand to speak to members of the public wanting to find out more about Riverside's housing options in the Southport area.

An Interpreter who speaks 7 languages will be on hand to welcome members of the wider community.

Dale Salmon, Scheme Manager, said:- "We wanted to open our doors to the local community to showcase the excellent housing we provide across seven schemes in the Southport area, including Retirement Living services. It's a chance to preview the services, and get one-to-one advice if you're worried about housing or are in housing need. People often don't realise that they can self-refer to apply for our retirement housing and we will have plenty of application forms on the day, as well as refreshments and a raffle."

Riverside provides over 55's Retirement Living housing as well as a range of other housing services across Liverpool. Dependent on need, specialist support can be provided to customers as well as access to GPs and District Nurses.

Margaret O'Brien has lived in Riverside Housing for over 20 years, first within its general housing and now at its Westholme Retirement Living scheme. She said:- "Riverside is my home and I love living at Westholme, everyone is so friendly and I couldn't have had better support and advice. They have been a lifeline to me."

Dale added:- "Riverside's Retirement Living Schemes are open to people aged over 55. The housing association also delivers a range of housing services for people of all ages and their families."

Each year, Riverside provides support for more than 7,000 people aged over 55, delivered to more than 4,500 people within its specialist housing centres. Its extra care housing gives older people with care needs the ability to access innovative, high quality and flexible service provision.
