The London Marathon is only a few days away now and five intrepid runners are taking on the challenge for Encourage, the Grand Union Housing Group brand that encompasses its supported housing services.

Encourage tenants will benefit from new sensory equipment for their accommodation thanks to the fundraising efforts from the fab five people running on 23 April.

Encourage works in partnership with care providers, delivering care and support services for adults with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues as well as extra care housing, retirement housing, community alarm and support, domestic abuse refuges and day care for people living with dementia.

One of the runners, Michelle Morris, has written a blog with just a few days of training left, while another, Cherise who works for Grand Union, has been visiting Encourage tenants.

There’s still time to sponsor either Michelle or Cherise.

Good luck to everyone running on Sunday!
