Cranhill and Blackhill residents get together for tea
Housing association joins up with voluntary organisation.
Thenue Housing and Royal Voluntary Service teamed up this week to serve a delicious afternoon tea in Cranhill.
The occasion provided another opportunity for Thenue to engage with its older tenants and obtain useful feedback to inform its Older Persons’ Strategy.
The event was held at the Scottish Veterans Residences in Cranhill and arranged by Thenue Housing and the Royal Voluntary Service, which operates a community café at the location.
Royal Voluntary Service’s motto is ‘together for older people’, and the organisation is supported by thousands of volunteers.
Paola Doyle, Thenue’s Housing Support Manager, said:
“This was a valuable opportunity for us to engage with our older tenants in Cranhill and Blackhill to remind them of the services we provide for older people.
“We were also able to listen to and take careful note of the things that matter to those in later life.
“Our Older Persons’ Strategy can only be effective if we fully understand what matters to our older tenants in the communities where they life.
“We are also very grateful indeed to the Royal Voluntary Service for helping to arrange this afternoon tea.”
Thenue is planning further afternoon tea events for older people around its various communities in the coming months.
