Caridon Property Group, a leading private provider and manager of social housing, recently appointed Brandusa Rotaru as a community engagement officer to support tenants residing in its Bristol housing scheme. The move is intended to continue the significant success of similar roles in other locations in terms of increasing engagement and creating foundations for strong community partnerships, while increasing levels of positivity among tenants.

Imperial Apartments, Caridon Property Group’s Bristol development, is home to a community of more than 470 tenants both private and social.

With eight years of care, education, therapy and volunteering experience, Brandusa Roturu will partner with local businesses and support services to deliver comprehensive events programming that engages tenants with the development and the wider community. Caridon Property Group’s on-site foodbank drive at Imperial Apartments has been extremely successful, staging weekly coffee mornings, with 80 tenants participating in the first week alone. In addition, early-years learning sessions and skills and education workshops are also in the pipeline, with specific sessions surrounding physical activity and mental health also being organised.

Brandusa Rotaro expressed her delight at working with the Bristol team, reflecting that she was hugely motivated by this crucial work supporting hundreds of tenants and making their lives better. Ms Rotaro praised the existing team, acknowledging that they do an amazing job on the ground every day. Brandusa Rotaro concluded that the development was unlike any other, with everyone going the extra mile for tenants, and said she was proud to play her part in that.
