Wellhouse Housing Association’s new income advice officer gets off to flying start
An income advice officer who joined Wellhouse Housing Association earlier this year has well and truly hit the ground running offering much needed services to the Association’s communities.
The work by Laura Reilly, who moved to Wellhouse from Enable, has resulted in a total financial gain from May 1 – September 30 of more than £348,997.
Housing benefit accounted for 28% (£98,933.99) of the total with Discretionary Housing Payments accounting for 2% (£8,621.62).
A total of 165 clients have received income advice during the period.
Maureen Morris, Wellhouse Housing Association chair, said: “We always knew that our in-house service was invaluable and our continued commitment to supporting residents is paying dividends. This along with supporting a young person into an apprenticeship with Saltire and our ongoing efforts to secure a modern housing apprentice, we are delighted to be helping our community in a concrete way – visit our website and social media feeds if you want to know more.”
