Since the introduction of the Wellbeing Team we have focussed efforts on bringing in additional funding to CVHA to support our customers through what has been a challenging couple of years with the rise in energy bills and cost of living crisis.  We have also widened this support to help provide financial assitance to community groups in areas where we have homes.

In the timeline below you can see funds we have been awarded over the last couple of years and how these have been used and funds CVHA have been able to provide to support community initiatives.
