A Doncaster housing organisation has been named finalist at a prestigious annual awards event to mark the company’s commitment and dedication to making the borough’s communities safer.
St Leger Homes of Doncaster – the organisation that manages around 21,000 homes for Doncaster Council – was a finalist in the Best Business Partner Award at the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Awards held recently at Barnsley’s Metrodome.
The award was to mark the continued work St Leger Homes does to protect tenants and improve the quality of their lives.
Mark Kenworthy, St Leger Homes’ health and safety advisor, said: ‘It is great to be recognised for the work we do. We work with the fire service to promote and educate tenants about fire safety.’
The company is working with the fire service to encourage every tenant to have a smoke alarm in their home and fire safety is regularly promoted in the tenants’ newsletter. The company works with tenants’ and residents’ groups to promote fire safety and some of its vans carry a message stressing that fire kills and for a free home safety check to ring the fire service.
‘We have also worked with the fire service to carry out high rise flat training at a block of our flats in Intake and we have distributed wheelie bin stickers in some areas to make tenants aware of arson and how a bin fire can cost lives,’ Mark added.
South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue’s Doncaster district manager Shaun Pilley, said: ‘St Leger Homes remain a valuable partner of ours, strongly supporting our fire prevention work and community safety campaigns. It is a highly productive relationship, leading to their shortlisting for this award.’
