Resident Zoe Rooney writes about #HousingDay and being a #ProudTenant in this honest and thoughtful account of her experiences as a Yarlington Housing Group Tenant ...
"I have seen much of the ‘Proud to be a Tenant’ campaign in articles and twitter.
I wasn’t sure why but this sentence bothered me. Lying in bed one night, I had an epiphany, one that kept me thinking for hours.
I am not proud to be a social tenant but I am certainly not ashamed to be one either.
To be proud of something that I had little choice over seems a little ridiculous. I, like many others, was never in a position to get a mortgage and was very grateful when I finally got the keys to my two bed end terrace."
