Get Involved

We’re a community-based organisation with strong tenant participation and involvement, and we aim to keep it that way.

get involved

Everyone is concerned about how their home and neighbourhood are managed, but not everyone wants to get on a committee and start running things so we give you a chance to get involved in a way that suits you.

Express your views from the comfort of your own home

If you want to put your views forward but would prefer to do it from home then we carry out regular surveys and set up text consultation groups which you can take part in. There might be one off certain topics that you would like to have a say on.

Tenants' Forum

Any tenants can come along to our Tenants' Forum. It takes place 4 times a year, generally from 5pm - 7pm, light refreshments are provided. Topics are decided in advance of the meetings and are generally issues that have been decided by the Forum on matters they which to discuss.

Prospect Scrutiny Group

Our Prospect Scrutiny Group acts as a "critical friend" to Prospect.  This group of tenants meets to take a close look at an area of our service delivery.  They then compile a report which has recommendations which are presented to Prospect's Managment Committee.  So far topics have included stair cleaning service, the rent consultation approach and antisocial behaviour.

Getting Involved Group

Tenants are very welcome to come along to our Getting Involved Group which meets every now and again at Clovenstone Community Centre. This very informal group meets to look at one off issues or projects to help us make sure we're taking your views into account when making decisions. 

Become a member

If you want to get involved in running Prospect you can become a member (it costs just £1 but you have to meet certain conditions). Thereafter, you can vote at our Annual General Meeting for who will be on our management committee, or even become a member of the committee if you wish.

If you would like information on any of the above please contact one of our Housing Assistants or complete the form below.

Feedback

Prospect aims to ensure that tenants always come first.  We are very keen to receive any suggestions or comments you may have that could help us improve services.

If you are interested in getting involved in any of these ways, please let us know, you'll always be welcome.
