Why it is beneficial to ‘Get Involved’ with your Housing Trust
You get to ‘Have your say’ in how we do things
By being involved in one of our customer groups you get to help us shape the services we offer to our customers. Each group looks at a service, which may be of particular interest to you. For example; members of our Repairs Working Group may have a keen interest in DIY or have a trade background. This may also, be the case for members of our Property Investment Group. There is no experience necessary for joining one of our active groups, all we ask is that you come along to a meeting and have the chance to ‘Have your say’, on something that is important to you.
We help you to ‘Get Involved’ and support you to stay involved
At Weaver Vale Housing Trust we are committed to providing you with ways to get involved in what we are doing. Whilst we realise that you being involved is extremely beneficial to us, we questioned what it is that you get out of it?
We have a dedicated team within the Trust who will support customer volunteers to help build capacity. We can send customers on relevant training courses and can also provide in house training. We are in the process of developing an induction process which will give you a little introduction to the value we place in Resident Involvement.
Unemployed? Raising Children? Retired? Or, just have time to spare?
If you are currently looking to go back to work, being involved in one of our Customer Involvement Groups, could give you that little extra bit to make your CV stand out from the crowd! At the Trust we also have a brilliant Work Programme team, who are on hand to help any customers who may need help with their CVs and job applications.
Donating your time to volunteering not only looks good on your CV, but it can also help you gain skills you may not have thought about before. Being a part of one of our groups can even help you build up your confidence, by meeting other people in similar situations, which is also another great way to make friends in your local area.
If you’re retired or just have time to spare, being on one of our customer involvement groups is a brilliant way of keeping active and sharing your knowledge and experience with us, once or twice a month.
Ways that you can get involved that don’t require attending meetings at our head office are;
Become a Green Inspector! - The Green Inspector scheme is a great way of helping us monitor our grounds maintenance contractor – if you’re concerned about the appearance of your neighbourhood, this will be perfect for you!
Have your say on Evoice! - Evoice is a brilliant way of being involved with The Trust without having to leave the comfort of your own home! Every month we’ll send you out a brief questionnaire on a range of topics relevant to the current happenings of Weaver Vale Housing Trust. If you’d like to be a part of this, simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org stating : Yes, involve me! In the subject field. Or, pass your email address to Stacey through the contact details below.
