  • , Tenant

    I had a very positive experience with Calon, they helped me get back into work when the benefit cap came into effect, I felt motivated again to get back into to work, Calon got me a work experience placement where I was answering phones and I felt confident again after being out of work for 6-7 years.  All the staff I dealt with was very helpful, even now after I have moved onto my permanent home I wish I was still with Calon.  The property I had was well maintained and ideal for my large family.

  • , Tenant

    This is the first home in have had in 7years and when I walk through the door I feel like I am at home. I only wish I could stay at this property. The area is lovely and I have got to know my neighbours who are all really nice. My experience with Calon as a landlord has been brilliant as they have given me a new lease of life.

  • Fanta Ndoeka, Tenant

    Not every Temporary Accommodation property is as good as this, I never had any problems.    The whole Calon team were wonderful, the property was lovely and I hope now I move to permanent my new home and landlord will be just as good.
