Local Panel

Get a handle on local issues. 

Can you see things in your community that need to improve – do you know how to go about changing them?

By joining your Local Panel, you can have a real influence over what happens in your area.

What would I do?

Our Local Panels are part of our overall governance structure. This means they link directly to the Network Homes Board. As a Local Panel Member, you'll be our critical friend monitoring service delivery and performance in your area. You’ll look at the bigger picture and challenge performance right across the business.

The panel meets four times a year to discuss a range of topics. You’d be expected to prepare for meetings by reading papers and making a positive contribution to discussions.

Is it for me?

After completing an induction and training programme, you’ll be appointed to the panel for three years (with an option to remain on the panel for up to nine years). You’ll spend about four hours, every three months, doing this role. You’ll need to be reliable and attend meetings regularly while contributing to panel conversations and appreciating other people’s opinions.

We’ll give you ongoing training to improve skills in areas such as communication, report writing and statistical analysis. You should be willing to learn about social housing – our role in the community, how we’re regulated and how performance is managed.

Hands up if you want to be a local resident panel member!
