Embracing Inclusive Communities - Virtual Resident Engagement Event

13 August 2020

Network Homes residents are invited to come along to our first themed virtual resident engagement event on Embracing Inclusive Communities. This themed event is all about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and we want to hear from you on how Network Homes can embrace inclusive communities.

These virtual themed events are open to all residents to attend and discuss specific topics, many of which were suggested by residents to the Resident Engagement team.

The event will be held on Microsoft Teams on Thursday 20 August from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. It will be hosted by Jamie Ratcliff, Executive Director of Business Performance and Partnerships with an introduction section followed by virtual group discussions in different Teams rooms. The table discussions will be facilitated by members of our Executive Leadership Team (ELT), Senior Management Team (SMT) and staff from across various teams.

Discussions will be centred around various EDI topics including:

  • Network Homes - Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:
  • What Network Homes can do to support residents facing discrimination
  • Your concerns about EDI
  • Actions Network Homes can take to meet The Houseproud Pledge

Ahead of each themed event we’ll be asking residents to register in advance so we can assign you to a virtual group for the breakout discussions. This is an opportunity to come along, interact with our ELT/Network Homes staff and make your voice heard!
