Tenant and Community Voice groups
The groups are a forum to help us make business decisions and improve our services, so we always help tenants, leaseholders and residents.
Purpose of the groups
We have 5 Tenant and Community Voice groups for the Gentoo areas of:
- Central Sunderland
- Houghton and Hetton
- North Sunderland
- South Sunderland
We also have a group for tenants aged 25 and under, and a group to discuss high-rise building safety.
Each group is led by a chairperson who is a Gentoo tenant.
The groups work together to:
- give feedback on changes to our service
- decide how to spend the local area budget
- identify what needs improving in the local areas
- approve Aspire grant applications
The groups meet every 2 months with our Tenant Voice Team at our offices or in the local community.
The meetings are 2 hours long. The first hour of the meeting is to talk about important business decisions and the second hour is to for funding applications and local matters.
How to get involved
To volunteer and be part of the group, you must be a tenant, a leaseholder or live in a Gentoo neighbourhood.
