Action Housing celebrates new home at Rawmarsh with public open day

A HOUSING body threw open its doors to welcome the public to its new base.

Action Housing celebrated the official opening of its brand new building at Rawmarsh Hill with an open day.

The new development will provide supported housing for up to 55 people, and has been funded by the Government’s “Platform for Life programme”, which aims to help young people who are at risk of homelessness.

Action Housing chief executive Claire McGonigle said: “This was a brave and ambitious project for Action, and it was amazing to see how everyone has come together to create a really great living space that can support the brilliant young people that are the reason why we’re here.

“We know that this fantastic staff team and building will be able to support the young people of Rotherham for years to come.”

Shadow housing minister John Healey and police and crime commissioner Dr Alan Billings also attended the event.
