Help to make your community a better place to live
We have a varied and inclusive resident engagement programme at Network Homes that all residents can be part of. Tell us what matters to you, inspect our services and get to the very heart of the communities where we work. It’s an opportunity for you to share your ideas and challenge our performance – while learning new skills along the way.
Show us how we can do better, and help us to:
- offer services that residents need and want
- work to a high standard, delivering quality services
- achieve value for money across our organisation
- enhance the quality of life for people living in your community
- ensure staff and Board members carry out their work effectively.
Why lend a hand?
By joining our network of involved residents you’ll benefit as well. Here’s what you’ll get.
As well as taking part in structured training programmes, you’ll gain a range of other skills just doing the role. Team working, digital skills, communicating with people and writing reports are just a few areas where you’ll get more experience. It’s a good way to improve your CV and future job prospects.
Being part of something that aims to improve the lives of others can boost your self esteem. If you’re out of work or retired, doing volunteering work like this can give you a sense of purpose and improve your personal wellbeing.
Most roles involve meeting new people. So if you live on your own or feel isolated, getting involved is a good way to make new friends. If you choose to join one of our panels, you’ll be welcomed by a friendly group of people who’ll help you settle in.
By working more closely with us, you’ll get to know about opportunities offered through our Worksmart employment and training programme. Getting involved now could be a stepping stone to gaining full-time work or making a career change.
Involvement opportunities you can be part of.
