"As a specialist housing provider and leader in the supported living sector, our customers are very much at the heart of RWP. We believe in choices, and we will always work with our current and future tenants to ensure that they are able to make the same housing choices that most other people have available to them, most importantly, where they live and who they live with.

"Launching RWP would not have been possible without the dedication of our colleagues and the support of our customers.

"Thanks to their hard work over the last year, we look forward to supporting more people to live and thrive."

Les Warren, Deputy Managing Director of RWP, said: "We were delighted that Reside Housing Association joined forces with Progress Housing Group in 2021. Today we are thrilled to announce the launch of RWP.

"We now begin our work ensuring that our tenants and their families and advocates can make positive living choices to live independently in properties they are proud to call home."

RWP Supported Living tenant, involved tenant and member of Progress Housing Group's Scrutiny Pool, David Robinson, said: "It's exciting to see RWP launched today. I was very pleased to be asked to be involved in the process of helping to design the new branding. It will be good to see how my comments have helped with the new design."
