Information for Tenants and Leaseholders
Do you receive Universal Credit? We explain the recent changes that could benefit you if you need to make a claim

If you have a family member that needs care and support at home or when out and about, a new mobile app called CareTeam could help. It’s a way to keep friends and family connected with carers and healthcare professionals so everyone can share information like medication, visits and appointments.

We're offering a free licence to anyone who can help us test the App plus a £50 voucher for the supported adult. You must be over 18 and have a smartphone. Get in touch for more details.

Throughout September we’ll be celebrating the many ways that women of all ages can get active, with ThisGirlCanSoton. If you would like to be more active but need a little help getting started, we hope you can find an activity that’s right for you. Whether it is in a team or learning on your own, visit the website and follow #thisgirlcansoton on social media for regular updates on free and low-cost sport and activities for women in the city.

And finally, congratulations to Eleanor Carter who won the prize draw for filling out our recent online survey asking for feedback on Tenants’ Link. We will be using your suggestions to make sure Tenants’ Link is packed full of the stories you want to read.
