I’m really excited for the Organsiation this week. we are celebrating the culmination of some really big changes – moving premises, relaunching and turning 30!!!!
Moving House – This move signals a new period in our development. We’ve out grown our old premises, and for some time have had to work around different services being based at different places. The move to HQ enables us to bring all our services together in one place and makes us much more accessible to the local communities of Plymouth and the surrounding areas. Colebrook has established a reputation for social inclusion and the move underlines our community focussed approach. It also means we can provide really easy access to the new Healthwatch Plymouth service, which we’ve been running since the beginning of April.
We started life by providing housing support so it seems fitting that for our 30th birthday we’re celebrating moving into a home of our own.
A New Identity – It was clearly confusing for our clients and stakeholders for us to use the name Colebrook Housing Society, when we now deliver a much broader range of services. At the same time, they really value our tradition of involvement and excellence in service delivery, so we have decided simply to be known as ‘Colebrook’ in future. It might seem like a small change, but it signals our ambition to continue to grow and develop, whilst keeping all that our clients and stakeholders value about our ethos and customer service.
Our launch event and birthday party for staff and clients mark a new begining for Colebrook.
