Adam Greenhalgh, Business Manager at Six Town Housing, said, “The event was a way to meet with local people and find out what they see as the urgent issues are on their estate. It also provided us with an opportunity to refer some of the attendees we spoke to on to different services that may help improve their quality of life, such as our Steps To Success employment programme.”
