Time to make a difference and join your local panel

Do you have great ideas for improving your local community or the services you receive and need a way of sharing this with others? Well we have something just for you. We’re currently looking for Network Homes residents to join our Local Panels as either a panel member or the chair.  The closing date for completed applications for the panel is Friday 22 March at 5pm.

Our Local Panels are part of Network Homes Governance Structure ensuring we put residents at the heart of the organisation. They are made up of residents who work with us to drive up performance and satisfaction and help us to continually improve service delivery.

How to decide between being a panel member or a chair

As a panel member you’ll be the informed voice of our customers where you’ll get the opportunity to work in partnership with Network Homes staff to help us to continually improve service delivery and make recommendations for organisation wide scrutiny. You’ll be there to ensure we’re compliant with Homes England consumer standards and report to the Customer Services Committee when we’re not.  Sound great? Then being a panel member is right for you.

If you want to do this and more then you should consider the role of the chair. As chair of the panel you’ll do everything panel members do and more.  In addition, you’ll get to chair meetings, lead the panel to provide constructive feedback on strategic decisions and represent residents at the Customer Services Committee. The Chair vacancy is also a paid role receiving £3,000 per annum.

Both roles are great opportunities and we’ll give you the training you need to be successful in them.
