Tenant involvement is about tenants playing a role in helping us to improve our standards and performance. Tenants can influence the way that Habinteg delivers housing and related services to help us provide excellent services. We encourage all tenants to participate in tenant involvement and offer a variety of activities.
The purpose of tenant involvement
- Gather feedback from tenants on their experience of using services and their opinion on the quality of the services.
- Enable tenants to influence how those services are delivered by involvement in service reviews and contractor reviews.
- Enable tenants to contribute towards setting standards for service delivery.
How can you get involved?
There are a variety of activities you can participate in. You can choose how, where, and when you get involved. Read more about the activities you can get involved in.
