Three associations work in partnership to deliver benefits for Greater Easterhouse tenants

Marshall Gemmell

Blairtummock Housing Association, Gardeen Housing Association and Provanhall Housing Association are working in partnership with Connect Community Trust to provide a new welfare rights service for tenants.

Management committees of the three housing associations expressed concerns at the adverse impact of Universal Credit on tenants and worked together to deliver a local solution.

Working in partnership with Connect Community Trust, tenants will have access to an additional welfare service, provided by recently appointed income advisor, Marshal Gemmell.

Marshall said: “If you have any questions, big or small, about your benefits or if you would like help completing any forms please get in touch for an appointment with me.

“The roll out of Universal Credit will affect your area at the end of the year so please come and see me if you have any worries about how it could impact you. Please feel free to come and have a confidential chat about any money worries you are having.”

This resource will provide additional support and advice to tenants who are worried about benefits, money and work.

Tenants can contact Blairtummock, Gardeen and Provanhall directly to make an appointment with Marshall or arrange a home visit.
