Sheltered accommodation gets a new lease of life

Dilwyn Court is among a number of sheltered accommodation in Waltham Forest to be renovated with new kitchens and bathroom, communal spaces and fire safety measures.

Dilwyn handover

Aston Group handed over the communal lounge at Dilwyn Court, a sheltered accommodation, last month. Staff from the London Borough of Waltham Forest (LBWF) as well a LBWF Ward Councillor attended. Cllr Mitchell spoke with regards to the Grenfell Tower tragedy on its 2nd anniversary. She went on to say that Aston Group are updating all of the fire precautions within the building which includes doors, ceilings, paint, alarms and more.

Carlynne, Head of Sheltered Accommodation at Waltham Forest had a lot of praise for Aston Group saying, all staff go the extra mile in their work.

Communal living space

More than half the residents attended together with a number of Waltham Forest Senior Management. Everyone was very impressed with the quality of the work and the fact that the programme was delivered on time and on budget!

All the residents were especially impressed by the new layout of the lounge and with the new lights offering a WOW factor. One particular resident said that they loved the new kitchen and could not wait for their kitchen to be installed. An opportunity was given to all residents to view the kitchen units, oven and hob and installation dates were provided to everyone giving them plenty of notice before the refurbishment works commence within their own flat.
