Take a quick survey

Don’t have time to attend a meeting? No problem! You can still share your voice and make an impact by taking a quick survey. All feedback is important and listened to.

Join a focus group or resident group

Want to talk to us about things like repairs, rents or service charges, House Talk or issues that affect where you live? Get involved in our focus groups (and nab a free coffee!) or join a resident group.

We pay for room hire and refreshments for current and new resident groups as long as enough people are attending.
