In your community
We believe that putting customers at the heart of everything we do is essential in planning, delivering and improving our services. By getting involved and voicing your opinions you can help to make a real difference to your community.
We have a number of local groups where you can meet new friends and enjoy shared interests. Or you might have some free time and would like to volunteer and support others in your local area. Whether you want to invest a couple of hours on a one-off basis or commit to something more long-term, there will be something to suit you.
Take part in surveys and feedback
We will sometimes send out surveys or ask for customers to provide feedback by email. You will usually have up to a week to provide feedback, and it can be done from your phone or tablet at a time to suit you and will typically take around 10 minutes. You don’t have to take part every time we email you, so it’s an easy and flexible way to get involved when you can.
Become a board member
Our board is made up of tenants, councillors and independent members.
Tenant board members are elected every two years and serve for up to four years. Meetings are held every two months and members will need to attend training away days and committee meetings.
Tenant and resident associations
Are you interested in joining or setting up a local group for your estate? It’s a great way to get to know your neighbours and make a real difference to the area you call home. Tenant and resident associations (TRAs) host a range of activities and meetings to focus on making their area a better place to live.

Volunteer with us
Volunteering can be a truly positive, life-enhancing experience, and the work we do in local communities wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated network of volunteers.
You can help in lots of different ways, no matter how much time you have and whatever your experience. You’ll connect with your community, boost your skills, meet new people and can make a real difference in your community.
Do you go from week to week without hearing a friendly voice? Though loneliness isn't in itself a mental health problem, the two are strongly linked. People who feel isolated and alone are more at risk of becoming anxious and depressed. Loneliness is a big problem, particularly amongst older people.
That's why we're pleased to offer our Befriending Service to members of the community. Our specially trained volunteers are available to call residents on a Tuesday or Friday each week between 11am and 1pm. What you talk about is entirely up to you.
