Westham’s hosted the launch of Wealden’s Retirement Living service.
It was held at Church Bailey Court and was led by the Chairman of the District Council, Cllr Chris Hardy. Guests included councillors, partner organisations, and staff from Council-managed courts. Other council staff and resident representatives, involved in helping shape Wealden’s older people’s services, were also invited.
Cllr Hardy was keen to demonstrate Wealden District Council’s continuing commitment to providing high quality retirement living accommodation, which used to be known as sheltered accommodation, and unveiled a new website portal which will take prospective residents and their families straight to all the information they need when considering a move.
The event was also the ideal time to unveil Wealden District Council’s new logo for the older people’s housing service and accommodation and introduce the dedicated team of Retirement Living Managers who provide on-going housing support and peace of mind to residents.
Cllr Hardy said, "Wealden District Council continues to invest in its retirement living accommodation, which we believe is among the best in the area. To highlight the quality of our older people’s service, we have given it a fresh name and logo, and the afternoon tea was the perfect opportunity to introduce our new website portal for prospective residents and their families.
"The website has had a lot of work carried out on it by various members of the Housing and IT teams to make it easier to navigate, more attractive and more interactive. The site links to Parish Council information, application forms and Google Maps, so potential residents and their families will find all the information they need in one place."
