September 2013

The Board Members and Executive Team of Elim Housing today welcomed over 40 stakeholders to a breakfast event in Gloucester Docks, in celebration of Elim’s fifty years in business, and the organisation’s ongoing work in Gloucestershire and the South West of England.

Staff and stakeholders at the event were also delighted to receive a key note speech from Chief Executive of the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, Shaun Clee, who spoke of the increased need for joint working and the great benefits that partnership working between housing and health organisations could achieve for vulnerable individuals and their communities.

Alistair Allender, Chief Executive of Elim Housing said, “It was a real pleasure to welcome so many of our stakeholders and representatives from other local and national organisations that we work alongside in Gloucester to our event this morning. Over our fifty years in business, Elim has made a positive difference to many people’s lives, and we look forward to building on this strong foundation over the years to come.”

Graham Russell, Chairman of Elim Housing said, “Elim’s appetite for partnership working is one of our organisation’s great strengths, and it is a credit to both our management team and operational staff that we have developed such a dynamic network of support and best practice in Gloucester. We received a very clear message about the benefits of joint working this morning, and I would like to underline Elim’s commitment to exploring innovative new ways to share expertise and extend the services we are able to offer individuals, and the organisations that work with those individuals in need of housing and support.”

Residents at Manor Gardens eating lunch

September 2013

The residents of Manor Gardens have been enjoying weekly exercise classes since the end of July.


The class has been set up following an enjoyable taster session with the local company G Fitness who are now running the classes.


An opportunity for residents to have some fun whilst getting fit and improving both mood and wellbeing, the classes are held on site, last one hour and cost residents just £3.00 per session.


The classes have been really popular so far with friends of residents asking how they can get involved.

A monthly lunch club has also been set up following a suggestion from residents.  A cooker has been purchased using a grant from the Barnwood Trust and residents have donated cooking utensils.


The first lunch was served on 10th September and residents were able to enjoy cottage pie and vegetables followed by apple pie and ice cream.


The residents favourite recipes and well loved dishes will be featured on future menus and cooked with the help of a volunteer and the Manor Gardens Housing Support Officer, Cathy.
