Community Engagement Officer appointed in Bristol

30th January 2024

Private Provider and manager of social housing Caridon Property has appointed a Community Engagement Officer - Brandusa Rotaru - to support tenants in its Bristol scheme. This follows the success of a similar role in other locations which has seen huge engagement, the foundation of strong community partnerships and increasing levels of positivity amongst tenants.

The community at Imperial Apartments in Bristol has over 470 tenants, placed by the Local Authority, and Caridon has appointed Brandusa (known as Brandy) to further integrate people living there with each other, as well as support them across three core pillars of mental & physical wellbeing, education & skills and children support.

Brandy joins with eight years of volunteering, care, therapy and education experience. In her role she will be delivering events programmes for tenants and partnering with local support services and businesses to help engage the wider community with the development and tenants.

So far, a foodbank drive has been set up on site with weekly coffee mornings which saw 80 tenants participate in the first week alone. Education, skills workshops and early years learning sessions are being planned together with specific sessions surrounding mental health and physical activity will also be organised.

Brandy said: "I am delighted to be working with the team in Bristol, and am hugely motivated by this crucial work to support hundreds of tenants in making their lives better, alongside the existing team who do an amazing job of support on the ground every day. This is a development unlike any other and everyone goes the extra mile for the tenants. I'm proud to play my part in that."

Imperial Apartments is the first development of its kind providing additional amenities for social tenants at no extra cost. The development includes two fully equipped gyms, an all weather play area for children, an indoor soft play centre, four IT suites, a wellbeing zen garden and fully fitted kitchens in each apartment in addition to the services Caridon provides. The tenant feedback is 97% positive and Caridon has won several awards for its management services.
