HOLD Scheme and My Safe Home

Sheffield Autistic Society received the following message from Susan Kirkman of Sheffield Autism Partnership Board:

Hello – Following on from our meeting with David Abbey of ‘My Safe Home’ at the meeting of the Autism Partnership Board on 31st July, I am trying to get an idea of the number of people who would be willing to explore the idea of a HOLD mortgage so we can encourage housing associations to work with us. Could you put the information below on the SAS website, anywhere else you think would raise interest and ask anyone you know whether it would be something they were interested in and get back to me with their details.
