Tenant Member & Partnership – We Need You!
Are you passionate about living in Wrexham? Do you have ideas and suggestions? Are you confident and approachable? Well we need you!
We are looking for tenants to become tenant representatives and get involved in our Tenant and Member Partnership, to have your say and represent your area of Wrexham.
Tenant representatives represent the views of tenants in their area and also the interests of tenants as a whole. Tenant representatives are volunteers and the role involves scrutinising, informing, and influencing policy and day to day business decisions, sharing best practice and connecting and consulting with other tenants. Tenant representatives are an important link between Wrexham Council and our tenants.
You don’t require any formal training to be a tenant representative, however, support and training will be provided to help you to understand how the housing department works and is funded. Transportation can also be provided for those who don’t drive.
What is the Tenant and Member Partnership?
As your landlord, it is important that you are able to monitor and review our performance, our future plans and the general way we deliver our service. One of the ways we do this is through the Tenant and Member Partnership.
The Partnership is made up of ten elected tenants and ten elected members. Every two months, they meet at our Ruthin Road Housing offices to discuss our performance as well as other issues which affect our tenants.
Council Officers and Managers attend the meetings, along with a number of local Councillors. We also invite people from other sections of the council and external organisations to come and speak to the Partnership too on matters which affect tenants.
The agenda for each meeting is decided by tenants, members and officers. It’s a chance to ask questions of Housing Officers, discuss our performance and suggest ideas which might help us improve our service in the future.
Elections to the Partnership will be held in October. If you would like to be considered for this important and exciting role or would like more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01978 298993. The closing date for applications is Friday 2nd August 2019. Good luck!
