Improving Lives

pt have been working with Paragon Asra (PA) Housing through various projects for some time now. Since the beginning of November, we have been working on a First Time Central Heating (FTCH) Program at 2 locations, Avonside Drive & Cropthorne Avenue.

Work has commenced on the installation of a new gas infrastructure to 152 flats. These flats have been heated by inefficient electric storage radiators, which have reached the end of their useful life cycle. The new infrastructure will provide a gas supply to power new central heating systems and efficient gas combi-boilers to all the 152 flats.

pt and PA Housing have worked together to help improve the health and wellbeing and have also assisted in reducing fuel poverty for of all the residents in these properties through securing significant levels of funding via the Warm Homes Fund. The funding achieved has made a significant contribution to these works being undertaken.
