Stockport Three Sisters

Three Sisters, Brinnington, Stockport

 

Social landlord Stockport Homes has partnered with CommunityUK (now Digital Unity Group) to launch ‘WiFi@3S’, a free WiFi broadband service for the residents of Brecon, Conway and Ludlow Towers in Brinnington, Stockport.

Stockport Homes is working alongside CommunityUK and social enterprise Startingpoint on the delivery of a comprehensive digital inclusion program to be delivered throughout 2015 - 2016.

The ‘Three Sisters’ of Brecon, Conway and Ludlow Towers are prominent landmarks in the suburb of Brinnington, one of Stockport council’s priority areas for investment and regeneration. Many of the local properties are managed on behalf of Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council by arm's length management organisation, Stockport Homes Limited.

Brinnington is not an area without its challenges including low wages (42% of residents earn less than £15,00pa), high levels of crime and unemployment levels greater than the national average (11%) responsible for socio-economic underachievement.

  • Over 200 tenants in three multi-storey housing blocks.
  • FREE 4mb WiFi Broadband and digital skills training.
  • TPAS 2014 awarding winning ‘Digital Heroes’ programme.

After delivering smaller-scale projects throughout the borough, Stockport Homes had decided it was time to move onto more ambitious, large-scale projects. In 2014, Stockport Homes selected the Three Sisters as an ideal location to pilot a pioneering digital inclusion project and has since worked closely with CommunityUK and Startingpoint.
