Tenant Participation

Tenant Participation 

Tenant Participation is about much more than bricks and mortar - It's about getting tenants involved in the places they live and the services they receive from the Housing Department.

It is very important that tenants give their views on services and how they might be improved. There are a number of different ways that tenants and leaseholders might want to do this.

Housing Services are keen to consult with our service users on every aspect of our service. If you wish to get involved and join a number of tenants who influence the service we shall be delighted to receive your contact details.

Contact the Resident Engagement and Insight Officer on 01543 462621 or residentengagement@cannockchasedc.gov.uk

Housing Board

Are you a tenant or leaseholder of Cannock Chase Council? Then we need your help. 

We are looking for residents to play a vital role as part of our new Housing Board. You will be representing tenants and leaseholders and ensuring your views are heard. 

The Housing Board is an important link between the Council and our tenants and leaseholders. As well as influencing policy, the Housing Board has a part to play each year in assessing budgets, works programmes and monitoring performance of the Housing Service.

We will cover all travel expenses to attend the meetings and as an additional thank you, you will also receive a £20 “Love2shop” voucher.

If this is something you are interested in, then please contact the Resident Engagement and Insight Officer on residentengagement@cannockchasedc.gov.uk or 01543 462621 to find out more.

Housing Improvement Panel

New Housing Improvement Panel needs you!

Are you a tenant or leaseholder of Cannock Chase Council?

Would you be interested in helping the Council to improve its Housing Services?

Would you like to learn more about Housing, generally?

And on a personal note, would you like the opportunity to improve your skills? Develop as a person?

If so, why not join our Housing Improvement Panel.

What is the Housing Improvement Panel?

Cannock Chase Council is passionate about its services and the tenants that use them. Our customer-led Housing Improvement Panel (HIP) looks at the way our housing team works and gives you the opportunity to improve the services that you receive. The HIP will take part in service reviews, engage with tenants, leaseholders and staff, support `value for money`, scrutinise performance and recommend improvements.

How can I benefit?

Being part of HIP will give you the opportunity to meet new people and build your confidence. You will have the chance to learn and develop useful skills such as interviewing, listening and evaluating, working as part of a team, reaching consensual decisions and report writing.

For more information please contact the Resident Engagement and Insight Officer on 01543 462621 or residentengagement@cannockchasedc.gov.uk

How else can I get involved?

You could join a Tenants and Residents Association if there is one in your area.  If not, you may consider starting a new one if your neighbours are interested too.

Tenants' and Residents' Associations are local groups organised and managed by a committee of local volunteers. Tenants' and Residents' Associations are recognized by the Council. They play an important role in building local communities, contributing to the making of policy and the delivery of services to tenants of Cannock Chase District.

Are you interested in shaping housing policy?

Do you want to comment on publications that go out to tenants and leaseholders?

We are inviting tenants to express an interest in joining a new virtual group, where tenants and leaseholders can comment on housing policies, strategies, documents and other publications produced by Housing Services.   This will be carried out ‘virtually’ over email correspondence. 

Virtual panel members will play an important role in providing the housing service with valuable comment and insight that can shape policy that may affect tenants and leaseholders, and help improve publications that fellow tenants and leaseholders would receive.

If you would be interested in becoming a member of the ‘Virtual’ group please let us know. Email: residentengagement@cannockchasedc.gov.uk or telephone the Resident Engagement and Insight Officer on 01543 462621 to express an interest.
