Financial Help Secured for Every Atrium Tenant
Atrium Homes has been successful in securing funding of just over £65,000 to assist its tenants struggling with soaring fuel costs. This means every household will receive a £50 payment towards meeting their fuel bills.
The Social Housing Fuel Support Fund is funded by the Scottish Government and managed and administered by the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA). It aims to provide practical support to social landlords’ tenants in order to help them to manage, or reduce, their fuel costs.
Atrium Homes is delighted to have been successful in its funding bid . As Operations Manager Mareta Greig explains “ We appreciate that with rising energy bills people are struggling to heat their homes and we wanted to make sure that we took advantage of the monies available through the Fund to try and support tenants with this”.
The project has to be able to be delivered by 31 March 2022. Payments of £50 will be made directly into tenants’ bank accounts and over the next few weeks staff will be contacting all tenants to obtain the necessary banking information and contact details to allow the payments to be made.
