“In my opinion, the service provision by Ash-Shahada is 100%. I am very happy as a tenant and very pleased with the service they provide to both me and my family. I have been a tenant with the Association first as a hostel tenant and now at a permanent property with my family. It has been a thorough enjoyment. I look forward to strengthening our landlord tenant relationship with Ash-Shahada.”

(Agashi, London)

“The home I have got from Ash-Shahada makes me feel secure and is a safe place for women. The staff understand what we need, and they are always willing to listen to us and help us”.

We have close contact with our support workers throughout the week. They give good feedback and keep us on the right track. They are always available, and it means we are never alone”.

(Ian, Birmingham)

It is so refreshing to be treated with respect and love from a social landlord. My time as a tenant with Ash-Shahada has been great and the house is beautiful”.

(Amir, Birmingham)

"I have been in and out of a lot of houses in recent years because I have not felt secure. At Ash-Shahada, I know I have security and the staff understand the best way to deal with us. Everyone is upbeat and positive, which is really important to have a happy and safe space to live”.

(Angela, Birmingham)

"I have been with the Ash-Shahada housing association ltd for over a year. I just want to compliment them on their outstanding service. The support workers are caring and passionate about making sure that tenants are well looked after. The maintenance team come out in the night or day to fix any issues the same day as an maintence issue has been reported. There are regular support sessions where tenants can voice any concerns. There is no problem that the team hasn't solved and I would recommend this accommodation as I have recieved a fantastic service. I want to thank the staff personally for everything they have done from maintenance to housing help to emotional support from the support workers."
