Paramount Properties supporting those in need during COVID19 31 Mar 2020
Helping those who are self-isolating
For people who are self-isolating and are in need of necessities, we have a small team of two that will pick these items up for you and drop them off at your door. Doing so, they make sure to follow government recommended practices to prevent spreading the virus (for example, wearing masks and gloves, using hand sanitiser where appropriate, and follow social distancing practices). We have already successfully delivered quite a few of these packages within our community, and what continues to motivate us is being able to solve that problem for people to help them stay home.
Helping Camden Foodbank
The reality of the current (and necessary) lockdown is that some people are losing their jobs, and consequently, more people than ever are needing to use local foodbanks to get by. Our office is temporarily closed and for the time being cannot act as a collection point, but we continue to strongly urge those who are able to donate to their local food bank directly (ours is Camden foodbank). Many neighbourhoods have also created groups through messaging apps to check in with each other and share necessities, and we encourage you join yours (check online) to see if there are people around you that might need help.
Lettings Director of Paramount Properties
Spencer Lawrence, Managing Director of Lettings, sums up how we will go forward from this crisis:
“Now that we have a bit of time on our hands, it’s time to reimagine the business, not to rebuild what we had, because what we had wasn’t good enough…”
As life changes for our tenants, landlords, and the people in our community, we promise to change with them.
