There are five Community Panels in Trafford, one for each geographical area of the borough.  The Panels each have a budget of £140,000 which they allocate against an agreed set of priorities that are informed by Community Needs Assessments and a Neighbourhood Plan for each area. 

The Panels meet every 2 months in their area, the meetings last 2 hours with some Panels meeting in the daytime and others meet in the evening.

One or two hours per month - regular commitment

We support a number of existing Tenant and Resident Associations (TRA's) and can assist with the development of new groups.  TRA's are elected bodies who organise a range of activities in a specific area. Groups that want to set up and get started are supported with advice from THT staff, help with promoting the group to local residents, developing a constitution, training, setting up bank accounts and applying for grant funding.

Block Champions are our eyes and ears in the blocks of flats where they live.  The role of a Block Champion is to inform the Trust about any issues or concerns there may be with cleaning, grounds maintenance and  reporting any issues like graffiti, abandoned vehicles, bulk refuse and communal repairs in or around their block. 

Block Champions can be from high-rise or low-rise blocks and are given support and training to help carry out the role and meet regularly to share ideas.
