Letting agent helps Crisis charity at tenant talk in Doncaster

Teresa Galley, managing director of Galley Properties, recently gave an informative talk at an event organised by the charity Crisis. The event was organised to help tenants increase their understanding of the rental process. Teresa was one of several speakers to contribute at this event which took place at the Doncaster Foyer on Wednesday the 15th of September. Galley Properties manage a substantial portfolio of letting properties for hundreds of landlords and tenants, in addition to this they also offer a competitive and professional sales service.

The talk Teresa gave was aimed at helping tenants understand the rental process while taking into account the landlord’s perspective. The things discussed were intended to build understanding from both sides and thus increase the ability to maintain long and successful tenancies. By helping to foster long and successful tenancies it is hoped that this will reduce the number of vulnerable tenants finding themselves in the position where they could end up homeless. Teresa was more than happy to donate her time and expertise to help this worthy cause. Ultimately by increasing understanding it is felt that both tenants and landlords can benefit.

Crisis are a national charity that supports people out of homelessness for good. They do this through education, training and support with housing, employment and health. They offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. The talks at this event were just a small part of the great things Crisis do locally. They work side by side with people to help them rebuild their lives. Decades of experience of working with thousands of homeless people means that they know what’s needed to help people leave homelessness behind for good.

Teresa comments:

“I really respect the charity Crisis. They are one of a few great charities that are on the front line actually helping homeless people turn their lives around. The things Crisis do aren’t just temporary measures. The support and advice they give to educate people is a huge step to preventing long term homelessness for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. They have helped thousands of people on their journey out of homelessness as well as helping thousands more from becoming homeless in the first place. In today’s society, homelessness is a growing issue and I believe the work done by Crisis is more important than ever before. To help this wonderful charity was a real pleasure and I will be looking at ways I can contribute further in the future”
