   Do you care about your home, repairs, planned works or how your rent is used.

Then you need to come along to one or all of the three focus groups that meet to discuss these issues with our Residents, Officers and Contractors. They are: Repairs, Planned Works and Finance. You are not expected to know everything about the subjects, but having some knowledge of repairs, building or finance, will help you and us. So, come and help other residents to shape the services we have and need for the future. There are free refreshments at the Civic Centre for the Income Group that meets every quarter, the repairs meet monthly and planned works bi-monthly via video link (Teams). You are welcome to come to any of the meetings to see if it is for you, before committing yourself. We also have our Disability and Carers Group that meets on the second Wednesday of the month that is there to help our residents who are disabled or a carer. If you are interested and would like more information regarding all or just one of the group meetings, then please contact Sue Rickard on 01702 212650 (leave a message and Sue will get back to you) or email:
