We want tenants to get involved and help shape our services. There are lots of different ways for you to have your say about GHA and the way we work.
We hold community events – including litter picks and pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us. We also carry out consultations and tenant conferences in our head office which let you have a say in some of the big issues for tenants.
Our Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey, which is carried out each year, asks tenants their views on what we are doing right – and how we can get better.
To find out more about getting involved with GHA – and our parent company Wheatley Group – and join our panels, forums or committees, please email our Community Governance Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Customer Inspectors work across GHA's parent company, Wheatley Group. They review services from the point of view of a customer. This includes visiting sites and interviewing customers.
They focus on key areas which are important to tenants, including repairs, customer service and complaints. The Inspectors make recommendations which we use to help improve services.
Registered Tenant Organisations (RTOs)
Tenant groups who meet our conditions can become a Registered Tenant Organisation (RTO). RTOs can get direct grant funding and apply for 'top-up grants' to help them with one-off costs. They represent the interests of customers in local areas.
They also carry out a range of activities including organising events to improve their neighbourhoods. Find more information at RTO Public Register.
Local Housing Committees
We have 15 Local Housing Committees across the city. Committees signed a Local Housing Committee Charter on 11 November 2015. Committees work closely with our area housing managers to identify local priorities for tenants, look at our performance at a local level and help inform our Locality Plans and Area Plans.
Chairs and Vice-Chairs come together regularly to discuss shared interests and city-wide priorities.
Polish Forum and African Housing Forums
Forums give customers from minority communities a voice to shape our services. Their views help us create forward plans for each forum.
Views of our younger tenants help influence our services.
