Gorhemynadow a’n Seson!


Coastline Housing sends greetings to all for the festive season.


The past year has been very busy for us as we continued to build more new affordable homes for local people.


2017 promises to be even busier as we head into our largest ever period of growth. We will keep you up to date with our news as it happens.






Housing minister visits Heartlands


Coastline Housing welcomed Gavin Barwell MP to a landmark development project of 90 new homes at Heartlands in Pool, being built with thanks to funding of £3.2million from Cornwall Council and the Homes and Communities Agency.








Hub Awards winner!



A Coastline Housing employee has just won a top Cornish business award.


Rebecca Jinks, the Redruth-based company’s Income Manager, scooped Employee of the Year at The Hub Awards ceremony. She was nominated in recognition of her swift career progression since joining Coastline as a Housing Apprentice in 2011.


Rebecca said: “I was thrilled to be shortlisted for the Hub Awards Employee of the Year, so to win is just amazing! My special thanks must go everyone at Coastline Housing, especially Louise Beard, our Director of Housing, Assets and Communities, and Kevin Brown, Head of Housing Services. Their support since I joined Coastline as an apprentice, plus the company’s career development programme, has been so encouraging.”





Homeless Service calendar



Clients of the Coastline Homeless Service in Camborne have come together to produce a 2017 calendar filled with original artwork that they have produced themselves.

With the help of staff at the centre, their pieces of art have been transformed into a professionally printed calendar which has been launched for sale to the public.

Jo Cowling, Client Development Worker, said: “The calendars are being sold for £5 each and all of the profits will be ploughed back into the Homeless Service, enabling us to buy things that local homeless people might need to see them through the winter."









Christmas countdown


Staff at Coastline Housing have donated dozens of advent calendars to a local food bank.

Colleagues are once again supporting the CPR Food Bank in the run up to Christmas to ensure families throughout the area enjoy the season. It’s the third year staff have collected chocolate treats.

Liz Bracelin, who organised the collection, said: “This has become an annual event at Coastline, where we ask people to buy an extra calendar during their weekly shop. Again, I am so impressed by the response. One colleague brought in boxes of calendars! Thank you to all who have supported this collection, bringing a little extra festive cheer at this time of year.”





New at Playing Place


Proud new residents have settled in to Coastline's 15 new affordable homes built next to a Christmas tree farm at Playing Place near Truro.


For one new resident in particular, Christmas really has come early thanks to a real team effort to provide a specially adapted bungalow on the development to enable him to live an independent life outside the family home for the first time.


Ryan Blakey, who has a number of different complex needs, required a bungalow in the area so that he could live close to his family and still maintain an independent life in future with the support of a care team.






Award winners!


Two Coastline Housing representatives were thrilled to take home an accolade each at the Cornwall Care and Support Awards in recognition of their tireless commitment to helping others in the local community.


Volunteer of the Year Award went to John Barnard for his inspirational work with homeless clients through Coastline’s homeless service.


The Unsung Hero Award was given to Melanie Heffer, who works at Coastline’s Miners Court Extra Care Scheme and runs the day centre facility, initially for Cornwall Voluntary Service but she happily agreed to stay when Coastline stepped in.
