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.

Neighbourhood Champions are devolved down into 3 sections Block, Estate and Green Champions.

  • Block champions- where you inspect the cleanliness of block you live in,
  • Estate champions- where you inspect the estate you live on and look at graffiti, abandoned vehicles, street lighting,
  • Green champions -where you inspect the grounds maintenance service.

You will be given inspection sheets to score the service and we will then report your findings to the relevant teams. You will be invited to quarterly meetings where we provide useful updates and information for our neighbourhood champions to continue to deliver their role. You will also be awarded with £20 Love 2 Shop vouchers for completing 3 inspections.

coffee morning_207x138.jpgWeekly coffee mornings are held in each of our sheltered schemes to provide residents and the local community a chance to socialise and interact with others.  This is a way we can to talk to residents in a setting that they are comfortable with.

Come along, and grab a coffee and a biscuit!
