Other evidence

The property is owned and maintained by Arena Housing. The service also benefits from having access to a handy person for day to day maintenance.

During our visit we saw that the building was clean, tidy and provided a pleasant spacious environment for people to live.

We saw that one person’s storage heater in their bedroom was extremely hot to touch. The manager stated that she would complete a risk assessment on all of the storage heaters around the building. Following our visit the manager told us that risk assessments had been completed and Arena Housing had been informed of the risk and work needing to be carried out to make the heaters as safe as possible.
