“Being such a small enterprise can feel quite isolated at times given the increasing challenges facing this sector, but Erosh is proving to be a significant lifeline both for the staff and the Trustees.  As a relatively new member I have found the website offers so much useful advice, and in such a concise format, that I frequently turn to it for detailed information, or confirmation that we are doing the right thing!  The new design has made it even easier to use, with the checklists being particularly helpful.  I am looking forward to getting more involved with our local network too, which will give us the opportunity to become part of the wider sheltered housing community.”
