Quarterly Board Meetings and Building Committee Meetings (CE) Selection Committee (DJ) Training Work-shops, and engagement activities with residents.



Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:

The Charity exists to provide housing to people over 50 who demonstrate a genuine need and have a connection to the area. The Charity operates several sites in the Town Centre and a site in Harrietsham†




The Charity fairly recently carried out major new building at the Church Street Site in Maidstone with just under 30 new units, so for the last 2 to 3 years has been concentrating on substantial programmes of refurbishment, including roofing repairs, new kitchens and external re-painting to various properties, as well as updating various internal policies and the residentís handbook. Currently as all bar one property is full and there is considerable demand the Charity is considering whether it should begin to plan for additional new building.
