Meet the team

The community investment team was established in January 2009 to deliver the community strategy within Cross Keys Homes.

We are committed to providing opportunities for residents and their families to get involved and make a difference, as well as improving the skills and quality of life of residents living within our estates. 

The team is based at Cross Keys Homes’ head office in Shrewsbury Avenue but can often be found at community events promoting resident involvement and at our many community-based projects.
