New Home New You

New Home New You is our exciting offer to every tenant who moves to a new Plymouth Community Homes home (excluding mutual exchanges).

Moving into a new home is an exciting time and brings lots of change. New Home - New You is aimed at helping you make small changes to live a happy, healthy lifestyle. It might be you join one of our walkabout groups, give up smoking or just get out in the community and meet new people. Our Housing Officers will be able to help you find the best ways to let your New Home be the start of a New You.

As part of this offer you could receive fortnightly veg bag drop offs for three months courtesy of Tamar Grow Local. This opportunity may get you thinking more about how to be creative in the kitchen with different vegetables which could improve the diets of you and your family. Here are some comments from people who have already decided to make a positive change for their health and wellbeing in their new home.

"Daughters are so impressed with the recipes that they are copying all of them. loved the red cabbage and apple soup recipe – amazing colour. Also likes to cook with her grandchildren at weekends so loves to get them involved in preparing and using the veg. Shares any spare veg with her family. Loves it."

"I roasted Purple sprouting broccoli last week with my young daughter,( with whom she is helping her learn to cook) and it was really yummy. Really loving being able to cook fresh veg rather than having to have microwave stuff."
