Thenue Housing has always gone beyond our core housing. We recognise that adopting a holistic approach to regenerating communities through a variety of activities not only builds safe, strong and sustainable communities but also has a positive impact on core business activity such as housing management and maintenance.
We know that many of our customers are facing increasing challenges such as welfare reform, securing employment, living in the digital age, lack of opportunities and health inequality. Our activities focus on outcomes and put communities first, involving local residents and empowering communities to take action themselves.
Choices for Change
Choices for Change is a Big Lottery funded personal development course which helps local people to improve their confidence and self-esteem and learn new skills.
The course is delivered locally, in community venues and runs 3 days per week for 10 weeks. Attendance will not affect participants’ benefits and we have limited childcare places available for participants with young children. Participants are supported to achieve their own goals, whether that is to volunteer, find work, get more involved in their community, or make better health choices.
Course content includes computer skills, personal development and REHIS (Royal Environmental Health in Scotland) Food Hygiene certificates through Glasgow Kelvin College as well as fun, informal activities to promote general health and wellbeing, such as energy advice, stress management and visits to local places of interest.
