At Homes for Lambeth, we are changing the way we engage with residents to stay in touch, that's why we're delighted to announce our yoga classes and weekly phone drop-in sessions.
Yoga sessions from your home
We are really pleased to be able to offer some gentle yoga to residents on all of our estates and are excited to be working with a qualified instructor and Lambeth resident Claire Hawkins www.clairehawkins.co.uk to deliver these online workshops through April.
• Wednesdays at 2pm – Seated yoga webinar. You can either phone in and listen or watch if you use Skype.
• Saturdays at 1.30pm – Yoga at home live YouTube broadcast.
Just visit www.engage.homesforlambeth.co.uk/yoga and the broadcast will begin automatically.
Phone drop-in sessions
Starting from Tuesday 31 March, we will be hosting weekly phone drop-in sessions to ensure we stay in touch during this period of social distancing and answer any questions you may have. The drop-in sessions will be for one hour each week and residents can call in to have a chat with our resident engagement officers and other residents.
This initiative is part of our wider Resident Engagement and Social Investment (RESI for short) plan which was outlined in our recently published Business Plan. Based on conversations with stakeholders, desktop research and feedback from residents, we are putting together social investment plans for each estate. So far, this work has uncovered seven overarching issue-based themes which all interface with the council’s borough plan– see below:
We will consult with residents on these plans and how they should be implemented. In doing this, we will seek to build local partnerships around the estates, which we will rebuild, focusing on those who are within a five-minute walk. In addition, we will use information from the council’s Equalities Impact Assessment (EQIA) to help us understand the different needs of the estates and you as a resident. However, at this time social distancing, we are experimenting with using digital channels to address the overarching issue-based themes our research to date has thrown up.
