What are you most proud of in our community?
“I am proud of how Phoenix supports and cares for our tenants. I am deeply proud that Phoenix built the extra care scheme at Hazelhurst Court, where I have the great satisfaction to work.”
Wioletta Jadeszko is the Extra Care Scheme Manager at Hazelhurst Court, Phoenix’s first residential development for people aged over 55. Once lockdown began, Hazelhurst Court closed to visitors to safeguard its residents, while Phoenix staff began volunteering to support residents – at Hazelhurst Court and across our community – and deliver food parcels.
We can only have pride in our community when everyone can be proud to be a part of it.
Phoenix is committed to equality, passionate about diversity, and dedicated to making sure that anyone from any walk of life can call this community home.
This means we need to maintain – and improve – our work to support vulnerable groups, to invest in communities, and ensure residents can afford not only to live in Phoenix homes but to thrive in them.
Meeting everyone’s needs in a community we can all call home
