Over the last ten days, Cheltenham Borough Homes’ staff have delivered 100,000 bottles of water to the elderly and vulnerable. Twelve Cheltenham Borough Homes’ vans are delivering water daily to 500 tenants living in sheltered accommodation and 200 vulnerable individuals. Staff have also been giving out water at distribution sites and delivering leaflets to tenants, advising them about how to manage with the water shortage. Some staff have also assisted vulnerable tenants with sanitation issues.
Paul Davies, chief executive of Cheltenham Borough Homes said:
Staff have done the right thing for our residents and are doing a good job of protecting the vulnerable in this crisis.
