All involvement activities are open to all tenants, the activities in this section only require you to be involved on an ad hoc basis. Activities in tenant scrutiny and tenant representative require an on going commitment.
Annual scheme meetings
The purpose of the annual scheme meeting is to inform tenants of changes in policy, discuss scheme improvements, and identify any issues that need resolving.
Quarterly scheme inspections
The quarterly scheme inspections involve staff, tenant respresentatives and tenants to work work together to make sure scheme are well maintained and safe places to live for all the community to enjoy.
Tenant led improvement budget
The tenant led improvement budget is money that enables tenants, in conjunction with their tenant representative (if applicable) to recommend scheme improvements. Proposals are developed through consultation with tenants and the budget may be used for minor improvements to a scheme that would not usually be covered by maintenance budgets.
A tenants’ association meets to talk about and deal with any issues relating to their neighbourhood. These associations improve the local environment, community spirit, and assist tenants in tackling problems. Membership is open to anyone who lives in the area and receives services from Habinteg. We can provide advice and guidance on how to set up a tenants’ association and a grant is also provided.
Habinteg’s Board is made up of 12 members, including the Chief Executive. Tenants can serve on the Board and have to apply and go through a recruitment process and are appointed according to their skills and knowledge. This position involves influencing decisions at the highest level.
