Old Boiler Gets the Boot Thanks to Heatrae Sadia Donation

Bognor Housing Trust was founded in 1984 and manages three projects which support single homeless people in Bognor Regis. The project where the new cylinder has been installed provides move on accommodation to single homeless people who are ready to leave Bognor Housing’s main direct access hostel.

The need

In 2010 CRASH helped Bognor Housing Trust redecorate and carpet a five bedroom shared house. Here residents are helped to develop independent living skills out of the hostel system, before moving on.

The five bedroom shared house supports residents to develop independent living skills out of the hostel system, before moving on. Each room is furnished with a sink, and residents share a kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

The solution

The support that CRASH gave “dramatically improved the quality of the move on project” so when their ageing hot water cylinder failed in the same property they approached CRASH for further support. CRASH turned to experts BAXI and Heatrae Sadia for advice and they responded by donating a Megaflo cylinder.

The social impact

Thank you all so much for your generosity. The residents living in the project were experiencing problems with hot water for some time due to the issues with the old system we had. This new cylinder has resolved all these issues and everyone living there is now extremely happy!
