What's in it for me?
Resident involvement is a really good way for you to help influence and improve housing services. If you feel like you have something to offer, whether it be ideas, opinions or your time, we want to hear from you.
Besides the opportunity to influence decisions, resident involvement gives you the opportunity to learn new skills. These include enhancing your communication skills, written skills, negotiation skills, organisations skills and team working. Whatever you want to do, we will make sure we provide you with the necessary training.
Skills and training that you can take from resident involvement will also be useful in other areas of employment and will look really good on your CV.
It is also a chance to meet other residents in the community, exchange ideas and make new friends. We have resident groups that even have their own bingo sessions and trips to the sea-side.
Additionally, if you reach a certain level of involvement you may become eligible for a £10 gift voucher!
