LBM Fundraiser - Shelter Sleep Walk
This December, London Block Management team members will be joining hundreds of Londoners at 10km Shelter Sleep Walk to help fight homelessness.
We're going to brave the winter cold to help fight homelessness... but we cannot do it without YOU!
This year, Shelter declared a national housing emergency with ''thousands of people sleeping rough and 6 million households at risk of losing their homes.''
Everyone should have a safe, secure and affordable home. Please help us support Shelter with this extremely important and worthy cause.
Any donation, large or small would be appreciated.

Last week at London Block Management, we held an internal workshop on hoarding behaviour and how our team can best address it.
Through an interactive session, this workshop aimed to raise awareness of Hoarding Disorder, increasing the team's understanding of it as an illness. The team discussed the increased health and safety risks associated with the behaviour and the best ways to approach the matter within the block management sector.

New client announcement - Hibbert Almshouses
London Block Management is pleased to announce that it has taken over the management of Hibbert Almshouses on Wandsworth Road in Clapham.
Hibbert Almshouses have a fascinating history. They were designed by the renowned Victorian architect Edward I’Anson (president of RIBA and of the Surveyors Institution, the forerunner to RICS, and designer of the Royal Exchange buildings and additions to St Bartholomews Hospital). Hibbert Almshouses were built in 1859 by the Hibbert sisters. A trust took over the management in 1864 and has been responsible for the buildings since that date.
The Almshouses are grade II listed and the front façade is particularly noteworthy. The buildings last had major renovations over 30 years ago and are in need of substantial repair to the fabric of the building over the next few years, along with some alterations to introduce modern amenities for the residents.
If you would like any further information, or could consider making a donation to support the charity, please visit their website at www.hibbertalms.org.uk
