Make your voice heard

Are you passionate about your community? Would you like to shape and influence our services?

Earlier this year, tenants, leaseholders and employees worked together with national tenant experts TPAS. The aim was to ensure that we put the resident voice at the forefront of housing services. Icon for powerpoint Read their full report and recommendations. [2.62MB]

We are now working together to implement the recommendations and we have two new opportunities for residents to engage and influence:

  • Join our Strategic Housing Board to consider and make recommendations on a wide range of housing proposals that will have a positive impact on Gateshead communities
  • Join our Resident Influence Panel to work with other tenants and leaseholders to make sure we fulfil our commitment to design our services based on real customer experiences

Contact our Involvement Team to find out more about the work we are doing.
