Have a say in improving housing services
We are committed to working with tenants to improve your housing service and estates. By working with us and telling us your views, we can make sure our services meet your needs and you will be able to:
- Influence decisions on how money is spent on environmental improvements
- Shape the future of our housing services and council homes
- Make your estates cleaner and safer places to live.
We want to hear from council tenants across the borough especially those with diverse needs who are sometimes under represented.
To give you an idea of how you can get involved we've provided a list of options so you can decide what suits you.
Ways you can get involved
Area Housing Panels
Area Housing Panels have a budget giving council tenants an opportunity to decide on how to spend money on environmental improvements that benefit their estates.
Housing Involvement Panel
Get involved in shaping our housing services and policies. The panel oversees all tenant involvement to ensure that they have the opportunity to play an effective role in service improvement across the borough.
Quality Standards Challenge Group
The group work closely with tenants that are involved in the community inspection group to uncover any ‘hot topics’ or ‘causes for concern’. They then work to provide a standard of service for future work.
Tenants Open Day
This year Rotherham is celebrating 100 years of council housing with residents from across the borough.
This quarterly magazine keeps tenants up to date on what is happening both in Housing and their local area, and provides information on our performance. As a tenant you can get involved as part of the Editorial Board to input into articles.
This year's popular annual contest is now closed. The winners of the competition will be notified in the first week of September. Thank you to all Council tenants and leaseholders who entered the 2019 Garden Competition.
