We are proud to be supporting the first-ever National Social Housing Safety and ComplianceWeek. A week dedicated to shining a spotlight on safety and compliance at an operational, strategic, and cultural level.

Running 21 – 25 June 2021, the awareness week is spearheaded by the Association of Safety and Compliance Professionals (ASCP), in association with CORGI, to raise standards in safety, compliance, learning, competence and collaboration for a safer future for social housing.

During the week, individuals and organisations are encouraged to create and share their safety and compliance promises or draw inspiration from pre-designed pledges.

At Progres Housing Group, we have always taken the safety of our tenants seriously, but this week and beyond is about what more we can all do going forward by committing to small and large actions today and tomorrow. 

Here are some of the pledges we've made to help keep you safe in your homes:

'I will continue to ensure we do the very best we can to deliver high standards and to keep people safe and share best practice across the sector.' - Jacqui De-Rose, Progress Housing Group Chief Executive

"I will continue to listen to and learn from our customers and frontline colleagues, taking all concerns raised seriously. I will work closely with my colleagues, peers and customers to ensure that all our tenants and residents are safe and secure in their own homes. – Cath, Head of Repairs for Progress Housing Group

I pledge that I will continue to promote a safe and compliant working culture and deliver our obligations in a timely manner. I will continue developing myself and my team to be the best we can be and true to the organisational values.' - Jason, Gas Manager for Progress Housing Group

'I pledge to do my best to help improve the safety of our homes for our customers and ensure that as a landlord, we continue to fulfil our legal obligations. I will continue to learn & develop my skills and hopefully have a positive contribution towards making Progress Housing Group a leading example for compliance in the not too distant future. I believe to achieve this, we must continue to have open minds, encourage people to challenge things where they feel necessary & communicate with each other in a constructive and respectful manner.' - Graham, Compliance Surveyor, M&E for Progress Housing Group

Claire Heyes, CEO of ASCP, said: 'National Social Housing Safety and Compliance Week is about working together and harnessing our collective strengths. Together we can have a huge impact and make homes safer than ever before."
