Getting involved

Getting involved within the community

We provide homes and services for many different groups of people of all ages. You have a right to be involved in decisions that affect where you live and the services you receive. We encourage all our customers to be involved whether you rent, are a leaseholder or a shared owner. We want to hear from you.

There are lots of ways for you to get involved. Read on to find out more.

Summer programme 2019

This summer we have planned a range of fantastic events for the local community, which we hope will encourage our residents and young people to get to know each other and get involved in our community events and trips. The summer programme is a great way for us to engage with our customers and offer something back to the community.
