Making Things Happen

Making Things Happen

Do you want to make a difference to the area you live in or help the people around you? Then we have a role for you! The Tenant Involvement Team can help support these community activities and always welcome new faces!

  • Tenants and Residents Associations
    • Tenants and residents associations, represent their local community and work to improve their area, by consulting and involving local residents. Tenant representatives will:
      • Give their views to the Council on housing issues
      • Campaign for improvements on estates
      • Organise public meetings and estate walkabouts
      • Listen to individual concerns
      • Produce newsletters with information on local issues

    These associations are democratic and represent a specific area or estate. They abide by a set of aims and rules (a constitution) and have a committee that is elected each year at an Annual General Meeting.

    The Council supports tenants and residents associations with running costs, admin activities, including producing newsletters, training and transport costs to meetings. If you are interested in setting up an association contact the Tenant Involvement team.

  • Tenant Community Champions

    If you are interested in organising a local community event to involve and benefit tenants, we may be able to support you with training to do this, and you can bid for funding and resources to facilitate the event.

  • Community Project Team

    Our Community Project Team is made up of Community Champions and tenant volunteers who assist the Council’s Tenant Involvement Team with event management and community projects throughout the district to deliver organised fun events in the community. Any tenant can be part of this group.
