Housing Inclusion Manager

We were delighted to welcome Stoke City’s Julien Ngoy and our partners PM Training, to one of our supported housing properties in Stafford.

The  garden has been transformed by a partnership between the Club and PM Training, a local company that train young people to help them to get into work.

We’re very pleased to acknowledge the funding of the makeover by the Stoke City Community Trust.

Some of their apprentices worked on the project which saw the outside space at the property given a complete makeover.


Patricia Hughes, Housing Inclusion Manager for the League of Friends, explained: “The previous tenant didn’t leave the house in a particularly good state and the garden was pretty basic

“Most of the people who will be using the house have children and they highlighted the fact that they’d like somewhere to get a little peace and quiet; a tranquil garden for them to enjoy. They’ve now got that, thanks to the Stoke City Community Trust and PM Training.”

Adrian Hurst, Head of Stoke City Community Trust, added: “We’re delighted to have invested in the League of Friends’ garden redevelopment in partnership with PM Training.
