Your home, your voice
Discover the many ways you can have your say and get involved in housing services.
We want you to get involved as much as possible as this helps us to improve how our services are run and makes our homes and communities better places to live.
'Tenant participation' means working together, as tenants and landlords, to make our housing services better.
We want to hear your ideas and opinions on housing policies, conditions and the services we provide.
Your input can make a real difference!
It's good to get involved
When you get involved, it benefits both you and us.
As a tenant, you have the chance to meet new people, gain confidence, and learn new skills. You also have the power to influence service improvements and help us understand what you want and need from us.
For us, as your landlord, your participation helps us improive our services, leading to happier tenants and fewer complaints. It also allows us to be more transparent and accountable in our work.
