In 2018 we launched our Community Involvement Strategy, setting out our commitment to resident and community involvement and included an action plan for bringing about a more dynamic and inclusive community involvement programme across the whole of Northern Ireland. Our Community Involvement work is overseen by our Director of Homes and Communities who, along with members of the Homes & Communities Team has produced our new Strategy document - Tenant & Community Engagement Strategy. You can view the document HERE.
Our Community - Small Grants Programme
We have a budget set aside to support Community Involvement initiatives. Our Aim is to support and increase the type and number of activities based at our housing schemes which will promote a community spirit and provide benefits to residents. Download the following to learn about which type of activities can benefit from the scheme. If you have a proposal for consideration, you can also complete the application form which accompanies the Criteria and return to our offices.
Habinteg Residents' Forum is a focus group of resident representatives, with Members elected by their neighbours and fellow residents from Habinteg housing developments right across Northern Ireland.
The Residents’ Forum meets three times per year, allowing Members, through their elected representatives, to voice their concerns and get answers to their questions. They also, through consultation with staff delegates, provide Forum members with an opportunity for genuine involvement in our decision making process and the delivery of our customer services.
We are proud to display the Resident Forum Recommendation and Resident Forum Approved logos on all documents which have undergone consultation with the Forum.
