Courses are held in local community venues across Swindon.
In the past year, the Tenant Academy has offered our tenants opportunities to learn new skills to over 100 tenants. Some of our highlights include:
The Tenant Academy has been organising Personal Safety Training Sessions in sheltered schemes across Swindon, where residents learned how to keep themselves safe at home and out in the community.
Lesley, had previously been pushed over while two young men had tried to rob her purse in the town centre, so she took these sessions seriously, and was keen to gain new tips for the future. She says;
“I thought that the Personal Safety Sessions were really good and Ken was really friendly and easy to talk to.
It made us all more aware of our surroundings and the sessions got me and others thinking about their safety, and we use some of the tips from the training”.
