- York in Bloom 2020, The Year we Stayed at Home
York Housing Associations annual York in Bloom 2020 was unlike any other year we have had before. Normally the event would be held over a week in Summer - housing staff would flurry around York, North and West Yorkshire, and the East Riding, looking at gardens, hanging baskets, and gardens on a plate taking photos and nominating all those wonderful examples for awards and trophies. We didn’t have as many entries this year, but we weren’t let down and below you will see photos of the winning garden. Our winner this year for York Housing in Bloom 2020 is Mark Speak of York, who wins a £25 voucher - Mark, we hope you enjoy your prize. Next year we hope things will be a bit more normal and housing staff will be able to venture out and take photos without masks and PPE to keep them safe. In the meantime we thought we would share some of the previous winners’ gardens which may give you some inspiration to enter York Housing Association in Bloom 2021…..the year we got back out and about!
- Are you an EU resident and concerned about your right to remain in the UK after Brexit?
If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021. The EU Settlement Scheme protects the rights you currently have in the UK including access to healthcare, benefits and pensions. As a York Housing Association customer, we want to ensure you feel supported through this so if you have any concerns please contact us or follow the link below for guidance. Applying to the EU Settlement Scheme is essential for all EU citizens looking to remain in the UK. You will need to complete an application for settled status or pre-settled status, depending on how long you have been in the UK, which will provide you with the right to continue to rent your home. It’s recommended you begin your application as soon as possible. https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families If you do not apply for the EU Settlement Scheme and you no longer have the right to rent your home, your tenancy will be at risk and it could mean you lose your home. To complete your application, you will need to demonstrate that you are living in the UK. York Housing Association may be able to help provide information that supports your application such as rent statements and tenancy agreements. If you require this information, please get in touch with us.
- YHA’s COVID 19 questionnaire
We wanted to find out what you, our customers, felt about how we communicated with you and delivered services at the start of and throughout the coronavirus pandemic. So, we devised a questionnaire asking 14 questions including : · did YHA respond quickly enough to the developing crisis ? · were you been able to contact us when you needed to ? We used Mail Chimp to send the survey to the 597 customer email addresses we had at that time. The survey was live between 02 and 28 September and we received responses from 75 customers; many thanks to those customers for getting involved. Did YHA respond quickly enough to the developing crisis ? Although we had lots of encouraging comments and compliments, it was a mixed bag with a lot of information to listen and learn from. One of the key issues raised was communicating with and contacting our customers. If you contacted us during lockdown and we haven’t come back to you, do let us know. "I think you did the best you could under the circumstances." We will continue to use the website for important messages and will carry on capturing email addresses so we can use Mail Chimp more and more going forward. So, don’t forget to make sure we have your up to date contact details. "I think YHA have come across as a caring landlord, who reacts to all aspects of reports, they have my vote of confidence" "It was very nice to hear from my Housing Officer to see how we were managing in lockdown." If you’d like a copy of the full survey results, please contact Rachael Simmons – email@example.com
