What are the important factors behind the process of conveyancing?
LinkLiving’s housing support team based in Falkirk has been awarded over £27,000 to develop a new project to address potential youth homelessness in the area. Funding for 3 years from the Volunteering Scotland Grant scheme will employ former homeless young people as peer educators to help prevent homelessness and support other young people to make positive choices.
Link Group has secured the top accolade in the annual Good Practice in Tenant Participation Awards this year. The Property conveyancing services award was presented to Jim Mathieson who is a Link tenant in sheltered housing in Falkirk and a member of the management committee member of Link Housing Association.
Link has embraced participation during the past few years and, following the appointment of a dedicated Tenant Liaison Officer and the establishment of a subsidiary company (Linkwide) to deliver wider action, it has worked with local communities in Dalmuir, Petersburn, Coatbridge, Falkirk, Edinburgh and Grangemouth to combat social exclusion by promoting employment initiatives, healthy living, community regeneration, computer literacy, environmental improvements and social and recreational amenities.
Karen Whitefield MSP and Chairperson of the Trust commented, “At all stages the Petersburn Development Trust has listened to the views of local young people regarding their ambitions for the park. The project will deliver its services to older people within their own locality and will offer benefit advice and information to tenants of Link and Castle Rock and to other customers across central Scotland.
