Peabody in the news

Spring came early for a great day in Hammersmith

Thanks to everyone who attended the recent Cleverly Estate Neighbourhood Charter launch.

The charter is a new way for residents to agree priorities and set an action plan for the local community.

Residents had the opportunity to talk to Peabody teams from Community SafetyLettings, Welfare Benefits, Employment and Training. External agencies attending includes the Safer Neighbourhood Team, London Fire Brigade Hammersmith Station, Victim Support.

Colin Aherne, councillor for Wormholt and White City, attended and spoke with residents and picked the winning tickets in a raffle.

Victoria, a resident, stated: “With the neighbourhood charter I am convinced we can now hold Peabody accountable, the charter is resident-driven and we will monitor it.”

"We are so pleased to have met children and residents of Cleverly Estate, the questions residents asked will be useful as we serve the neighbourhood," said one of the firefighters present.

"I am delighted that residents have come out to support the Neighborhood Charter Event and look forward to working with the residents to address the priorities they have highlighted to us." said Wells Chomutare, Assistant Head of Neighbourhoods.

"With the surveys now completed, we will work to improve on our services and take note of the priorities indicated by residents, we will also provide Neighbourhood Manager Kayode Ogundamisi with the necessary tools to sustain the standard we have achieved so far on Cleverly Estate."
