Balby Bridge residents are benefiting from a range of new and improved facilities with the opening of a new St Leger Homes office today at 40 St James Street, Balby Bridge, DN1 3BB.
The new office on St James Street was opened by Councillor Glyn Jones (Deputy Mayor and Portfolio Holder for Housing and Equalities at Doncaster Council) and Alan Tolhurst (Chairman of St Leger Homes), this morning (Tuesday 14th November) - with the ribbon formally cut by local tenant Betty Storry.
The office will offer better reception facilities, meaning it will be easier for residents to drop in and access services. There will also be a new digital hub providing internet access for residents to support them in accessing benefits and searching for work.
As part of the building there will also be facilities for partner agencies to run drop-ins from the office which will help extend the already excellent partnership work already on going on the estate.
Paul Tanney, Chief Executive of St Leger Homes, said:
“This new office is a sign of St Leger Homes’ continuing commitment to Balby Bridge and its residents, replacing our existing office at Sandbeck House with new improved reception and staffing facilities.
“We want to create a real community hub where people can access the support and services they need, not just from ourselves but from partner organisations making a difference locally.”
Deputy Mayor, Councillor Glyn Jones, added:
“I am really pleased to see this office opening in Balby Bridge. It gives residents another valuable and accessible point of contact, and I’m sure will be very much appreciated by local people.”
