TP Managed Services social value and community investment initiatives provided funding to M&Y Maintenance and Construction to enable them to completely refurbish the Petrus Hub homelessness centre in Rochdale.

M&Y Maintenance and Construction, with support from TP Managed Services and their knowledge of housing maintenance solutions and procurement for housing, BSE Electrical, MCP and Martlews Property Maintenance, refurbished the bath, shower and toilet rooms, including replacing showers, baths, toilets and sinks and laying new flooring.

Petrus Hub offers a range of essential day support services to vulnerable people, where those who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless can access advice and support, along with more practical help such as shower and laundry facilities and a daily breakfast.

Ed Sweeney, Head of Procurement at M&Y Maintenance and Construction, said “By working in partnership with Travis Perkins Managed Services, we have been able to positively impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. We will continue to work together on community based projects that make a real difference.”

Denis Skelton, Coordinator for Petrus, said: “Petrus Hub supports up to 100 vulnerable adults every week and we are incredibly proud of the work we do. However, it’s fair to say that the facilities we offer had become run down over the years. We had planned to carry out extensive refurbishments to the bathroom areas of the hub, which were proving to be very costly. The difference this has made to the Hub, and more importantly to those using the facilities, is incredible.”
