Spring 2024 Intouch

The latest edition of our resident magazine is now available to read.

With summer on its way, the warmer and brighter weather is very welcome as spring begins to move us on from a cold, wet winter. In this edition, we share information about our new triage reporting system for damp and mould as well as an update on our rents and service charges from April 2024.

We also share a charity fundraising update, announcing that we will be working with Luna’s Fund for the next 12 months as our new Charity of the Year and reveal that last year we raised a huge £7,000 for the Plymouth branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

In this edition we take a look at our Digital Inclusion Scheme which is being run in partnership with Livewell Southwest to help support residents to get online. Margaret, a local PCH resident kindly shares her story with us about how being given a tablet to book online GP appointments and to shop online has changed her life.

In a slightly different feature, we put a spotlight on our recruitment and training of local people, and we wanted to share some of the success stories of our awesome apprentices. We also introduce our residents to Joanne, our newest Board Member and Tracy, our new Executive Director.

The Beacon has plenty on offer to our residents and the local community, including a coffee shop, meeting rooms, a library, a charity shop and so much more. PCH residents living in the area have recently unveiled a meaningful mosaic at The Beacon to showcase their collaboration and close-knit community spirit. You can read more about this within this edition.

We also share about the new mural at Western Approach and showcase our support for Plymouth Pride 2024. Please email Ryan Huws if you would like to volunteer.

Finally, we spoke with Trevor, a resident who made good use of our Reuse Centre to get him essential white goods for his kitchen.
