Introduction to St Peter’s
St Peter’s is a small, community-based housing association located in Saltley, Birmingham.
We have 99 flats within the college buildings on our main site and also have 6 houses within walking distance.
The Saltley neighbourhood is a significantly economically disadvantaged part of Birmingham where poverty, vulnerability and limited opportunity are key issues. Many of our tenants face an increasing challenge to maintain their tenancies as a result of the government’s welfare reform agenda. We recognise and aim to respond to this, going beyond legislative requirements in order to improve the lives of our customers.
We are committed to helping our tenants have sustainable tenancies and be active members of the community. Where a tenant is having problems maintaining their tenancy we will help and signpost them to the right help, and liaise with other agencies; including benefits, social services and police where relevant.
St Peter’s provides good quality housing and responsive services at St Peter’s and in the surrounding area. We will, where possible, assist and work with the local community in providing services that will enhance and improve the quality of life of residents.
This mission is underpinned by our Values:
Commitment – we are committed to our neighbourhood and this commitment means we do what we say we will, we deliver quality, our services are effective and they are delivered with integrity.
Openness – we value opinion and engage with staff and tenants to hear their views and we are transparent in our decision making.
Working together – our work is community focussed and we share a sense of ownership and power with our tenants to ensure that community focus and empowerment are at the heart of what we do.
Local flexibility – our service is personalised and sensitive to individual and community need. Our size and location means we can respond and change direction very quickly to meet needs.
