Kevin Stewart, MSP, Minister for local Government, Housing and Planning issues open letter to all tenants:-
Since the end of March ACHA workers who are employed by the Association’s
repairs company, Argyll Homes for All (AHFA), have been delivering essential
supplies. This has involved the
Association working with Argyll and Bute Council to deliver food, prescriptions
and other necessities of life to people who are self-isolating, living on their
own, and often without any form of transport.
The Association has 54 vans and lorries across Argyll and Bute which are tied in with the relief operation.
Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) has delivered a van of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Lorn & Isles Hospital in Oban to be distibuted throughout Argyll and Bute to meet Health Board priorities during the Coronavirus pandemic. The PPE included visors, facemasks, gloves, aprons and shoe covers. The drop off was co-ordinated by Association tradesmen from throughout Argyll who are currently carrying emergency repairs and essential servicing. This involved PPE from various parts of Argyll being brought to Inveraray for a final pick up for onward travel to Oban.
AHFA’s Grounds Maintenance team have now resumed grass cutting and plant maintenance in shared areas, but to keep our workers safe while they work we need your help.
Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) has set up a Coronavirus Resilience Group which meets daily to deal with the changing and challenging situation that pandemic has brought. The Association's office network throughout Argyll and Bute closed on Tuesday and the Association's 250 staff are all now home working.
