“DGHP has a long history in the area. We are committed to building on that work and providing safe and secure homes and peaceful communities for our customers to live in.

“I am keen that DGHP also builds a legacy of creating opportunities for young people locally. We have been engaging with schools and colleges, informing young people of the opportunities in housing and that you don’t have to leave the area for a career.”
