Get involved

Volunteers preparing food in the FoodCycle kitchen There are so many ways you can get involved in our work - and it doesn’t have to meancoming to a meeting.

We encourage residents to get involved because it helps us to understand how we can improve.

Getting your views on what you want from your home and neighbourhood helps us as we develop services that meet your needs. It could also help you to meet new people and develop new skills. If you don’t have much time to spare, you could give your views by phone or email, at a time to suit you.

Or, if you have a bit more time, you could join one of our Area Panels set up to look at particular services, or even apply to join our Residents Board by contacting our Governance Manager who will be able to let you know when a vacancy becomes available.

There are also great ways you can volunteer to help others in the community by sharing your skills with them. We are always looking for people to volunteer at our Community Hub in Westwood, to support people on our IT and English courses and to get involved with our cooking projects, such as Jamie's Ministry of Food and FoodCycle.

If you would like to get involved with us call: 01733 396404 or email us

Practical support

We really value your input as an involved resident and offer a wide range of practical support options to enable you to get the most from being involved with us.

Any special needs are taken into consideration and extra support can be provided wherever necessary. Please do let us know of any special requirements that you may have so that we can ensure you receive the appropriate level of support (eg any mobility problems, hard of hearing, etc).
