Tenant Involvement

Tenant involvement is about tenants playing a role in helping us to improve our standards and performance. We encourage all tenants to get involved in shaping our services and have developed a new Tenant Engagement Strategy that sets out our approach to tenant engagement.

Get involved

It is easy to get involved and the amount of time and commitment is up to you. There are also real benefits of being involved

  • You can have a real opportunity to shape your housing service
  • You can develop new skills and knowledge
  • You can make connections with other tenants
  • Training and support is provided

If you have never done anything like this before then we can talk to you about the options available and the support provided. You are also welcome to observe any of our meetings to meet other tenants and see what is involved. You can contact us here.

The Council will be developing a new model of tenant engagement but there are still many ways you can become involved. Click on the tabs below to find out more about the different options:
