Welcome to the October edition of the Tenant Engagement News Bulletin! We are delighted to say that this month we have no new resident key allocations as all 465 TORC homes across the country are now occupied (woohoo!).
This month marks the launch of the TORC Foundation Education Bursary. The TORC team have been working on this initiative for a while, so we are thrilled to finally launch it and invite applications from residents. Apply now for financial support to access an education, training or personal development course. Last month the TORC Foundation also funded some back-to-school assistance for 580 children in 330 TORC households. It was great to get some feedback from residents on this initiative:
“Just to say thank you so much for the back-to-school gift cards – they will really help with the ever-rising cost of ingredients for school pack lunches”
“All the little extras you guys do must take an awful lot of work, but it doesn’t go unnoticed”
It’s Halloween on the 31st of October so of course we are doing a couple of activities – the Halloween Bingo, and the children’s Costume Competition – further details below.
Don’t forget to follow TORC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
