Young Tenants Get Together

Wolverhampton Homes is inviting young tenants to attend an event aimed at budgeting skills.

Young tenants in Wolverhampton can find out about money management at a free Get Together on Thursday 28 July organised by Wolverhampton Homes.

The theme of the event is ‘Saving Money, Money Matters’ to give the 16-30-year-olds the opportunity to discuss money issues.

The event will also help young people further enhance their budgeting skills so they can become responsible tenants in the future.

The Arms Length Management Organisation, which looks after Wolverhampton City Council’s housing, will have staff on hand to answer money queries and give out advice on managing cash flow.

The Get Together for young tenants will be held at 6pm to 8.15pm at the Britannia Hotel, Lichfield Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1DD.

A buffet will be provided along with an on-site child care facility.

Councillor Peter Bilson, Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Prosperity, said: “Times are tough at the moment, especially for young people, so this event offers a great opportunity for them to find out more about managing their money, pick up free advice and chat with staff.”

This Get Together for young tenants follows a successful series of Get Togethers over the past two years, which has seen more than 1000 tenants share their views on how housing services could be improved.

Lesley Roberts, Chief Executive of Wolverhampton, will also be attending to hear young tenants’ views.

“Young tenants face a wide range of challenges and it’s our job to make sure we support them in every way we can, from offering financial support – at events like this – to helping them to find housing in the City.

“Money issues regularly top the list of enquiries from our young tenants and I look forward to hearing how I can help them more.”

Any tenants who would like to attend should call 01902 556789 and ask to speak to the Tenant Involvement Team.
