Consultation Calendar 2018

Consultation Calendar 2018

It’s important that as many tenants as possible are involved in discussions to help us review what we do and improve services.  We will do everything possible to support you to get involved, this includes meeting your individual needs, providing transport to meetings and childcare costs where required.

We will also make sure that whenever we consult you, we will tell you how your views made a difference and will share the outcome widely.

Please contact us if you’re interested in any of the consultations and look out for adverts in the Housing News.
