Resident engagement and accountability
Your involvement in shaping our housing services is vital. We value your experience and feedback and want to hear your voice. There are many ways that you can get involved and we encourage all residents to engage with us.
Our web pages show you how you can bring your knowledge and expertise to work with us to help deliver better services for everyone.
The ways you can get involved where you live in are:
- either joining or forming a tenants and residents association (TRA)
- becoming a block or street champion if you live in a small block that is not part of an estate or a street property
- taking part in an estate inspection.
We work in partnership with resident representatives at three forums:
- housing representatives’ forum – the central group for engagement, bringing together TRA and sheltered housing representatives, block champions and service improvement group chairs
- sheltered housing forum – working with us to represent the 21 schemes in the borough
- leasehold forum – discussing service charges and building management.
We also work with the following resident-led service improvement groups:
- disabled residents’ housing strategy group
- fire, building safety and repairs working group
- housing and estates working group
- investment group.
Code of conduct
All of our resident-led groups and forums work to a code of conduct to help make sure being a part of our meetings and activities is a great experience and that everyone understands acceptable standards of behaviour.
