Making Rent a Priority
Rent First is a way of supporting our tenants to manage their money and stay on top of their rent payments. It's not appropriate for all our tenants, however we think that if people are having difficulty making ends meet it's important that we are on hand to offer advice and support. This may be in the form of budgetary advice, payment plans, or even identifying additional benefits that an individual may be entitled to claim.
We have a team of individuals trained to offer advice and support on money issues. If you are experiencing difficulties in paying your rent or would like any information or advice on issues relating to your rent acount please contact us, we are here to help. Rent First
Staff at United Welsh have raised £1,163 to help the work of Samaritans.
Greg England, Head of Communications at United Welsh, said: “We are delighted to have raised so much money for a charity which does such valuable work. Our people voted overwhelmingly to support Samaritans as a corporate charity of United Welsh and we know it meant a great deal to everyone.
“We are glad we could help to make a difference to Samaritans and look forward to continuing our close work with them in the future.”
Housing and Regeneration Minister Carl Sargeant has met with a housing tenant who moved from their former home due to Welfare reform.
The tenant, who wishes to remain anonymous, moved several miles from a community they had lived in for many years.
However, despite the upheaval, they are now happily settled in a brand-new one bedroom property on an estate owned by United Welsh.
Housing and Regeneration Minister Carl Sargeant AM has expressed his delight after visiting a long-term empty property currently being refurbished by Empty Homes Wales. The Minister visited a house in Barry which had been left empty and neglected for more than three years. With its crumbling façade and unkempt gardens, it was a blight on the local community.
Children from Cwrt Rawlin Primary School have joined forces with our Plas Hyfryd Living+ scheme in Caerphilly to create a garden area for residents to enjoy.
The green-fingered youngsters, all aged between seven and 11, visited the scheme on Wednesday 26 March armed with trowels and spades.
Over the course of two hours, they planted a variety of flowers in custom-made planters especially designed so that wheelchair users can easily access them. Among the plants chosen by the residents were two types of lavender, meaning people with poor eyesight can still enjoy the garden.
