Get ready for Housing Week in Exeter Housing Week

People in Exeter can look forward to seven days of housing related activity next month, as Housing Week comes to the city.

Just about everyone in the city who needs housing advice will be able to tap into a week of activities and celebrations starting on Monday 5 August.

There will be videos offering handy advice to City Council tenants and leaseholders as well as activity days throughout the city.

The initiative has been organised by Exeter City Council’s housing teams for its tenants, leaseholders, people living in our temporary accommodation, housing professionals, and Exeter residents who are in need of housing advice.

People can keep an eye out on the Council’s social media from 5 August for useful bite-sized videos that contain housing advice for tenants and leaseholders. There will also be a spotlight on the latest developments and interviews with some of the people who live in Council properties.

There will be a community safety day on Wednesday 7 August between 11am and 2pm in Summerway Play Park, Willow Way. Free ice-cream and face painting will be available. Devon and Cornwall Police, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue, housing staff and contractors will all be there too. Housing teams will be sharing important health and safety information with residents, as well as enjoying some fun activities for young people.

On 8 August, Housing Week will be moving to Wonford playing grounds by the Wonford Community Centre (or inside the centre if it is raining). There will be family-friendly activities for residents of all ages and free ice-cream, a face painter, fun physical activities and creative projects for young people. All Exeter residents are invited to take part.

On Friday 9 August there will be pop-up housing surgeries across the city. Housing advice officers will take over parts of the Exeter Library, providing housing advice to those who are homeless or faced with homelessness. At the same time, housing officers will be providing support to tenants and leaseholders at the Beacon Centre and at the Wonford Community Centre, with free tea and coffee being provided. People are invited to come along and have a chat.

This week is a great opportunity for housing staff to connect with residents and to give back to the community.
