Last week, Aico partnered with Inside Housing, the weekly magazine for the UK Social Housing sector, to launch a four-month long campaign to heighten the awareness of resident safety at Housing 2019.

Aico took over the delegate lounge at the festival for an informal panel Q&A session with residents, chaired by Inside Housing’s editor Martin Hilditch. At the same time, a competition was opened, asking to hear from Housing Associations who have run safety campaigns that have engaged residents with measured success. Martin Hilditch, editor of Inside Housing, said: “There is nothing more important for Social Landlords than providing people with a safe, secure home.

“The new Resident Safety Campaign is designed to spread good practice in this area. We want to hear from Tenants and Landlords about what’s working best so we can provide helpful advice to other organisations. It’s vital that we keep looking for new ways to share learning and embed the very best safety culture across the housing sector.”

The Resident Safety Campaign will promote best practice in resident safety and to enable Registered Social Landlord’s to provide widespread safe places to live. It is intended to increase the awareness of a good strategy and provide practical advice that addresses the need for safety regarding Carbon Monoxide; issues surrounding gaining access to resident properties; and safety in supported living environments.

Tina Mistry, Regional Specification Manager for Aico who participated in the panel discussion for the Q&A session with residents, commented “Collectively our aim is to keep tenants and residents safe within their homes. Installation of Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarms is part of that process. The installation is the easiest part but it’s equally important that we empower and engage tenants, residents in the process prior to work starting and after the work is completed”.

To keep updated on all the latest news and information regarding the campaign follow us on all Social Media platforms, all activity for the campaign will be accompanied by the hashtag #SaferHomes4All.
