Get involved

As part of our Month of Engagement throughout November, we'll be highlighting the many different ways tenants can have a say in Dunedin Canmore - and how tenants' views help shape our services.

There are lots of ways to get involved – no matter your age, background or where you live.

Getting involved with Dunedin Canmore is also a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.

Do you want to get involved? You can join in a conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter – or you can become part of our panels, forums or committees. Or you could apply to become a tenant Board Member.

We hold community events – including litter picks and pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us. We also carry out consultations and tenant conferences in our head office which let you have a say in some of the big issues for tenants.

Our Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey, which is carried out each year, asks tenants their views on what we are doing right – and how we can get better.

If you want to get involved please call us free on 0800 561 0088 or email

Find out more about our panels, forums and committees below.

Customer Forum

The Customer Forum meets four times a year and is open to all customers. It is the main way we consult our customers and make sure we take their views on board.

Forum Working Groups

The Customer Forum has ‘Working Groups’ that meet to review policies and make recommendations to the main forum.

Customer Panel

The Panel meets monthly to look at how Dunedin Canmore is performing in areas such as repairs, investment in our homes and our environmental services.

Registered Tenants’ Organisations (RTOs)

RTOs represent their own areas and work closely with our staff on issues in their communities.

Area meetings and visits

We hold regular area visits and meetings so we can get customers’ views.

Individual customers

We are developing links with customers who can’t make it along to meetings. We will do this by the internet and other methods.

Share Members

Customers can become members of Dunedin Canmore for just £1. Becoming a member gives you lifetime membership of the Association and allows you to vote at general meetings.

Youth Board

Views of our younger tenants help influence our services.


We carry out regular surveys to learn in more detail what customers want and how we’re doing.

Polish Forum and African Housing Forums

Forums give customers from minority communities a voice to shape our services. Their views help us create forward plans for each forum.

Welfare Reforms Tenant Advisory Group

This group plays an important role in working with us to develop activities that help to lessen the impact of welfare reforms on our customers.

Areas of particular interest include fuel poverty, debt and the provision of information and advice. The group meets approximately four times a year.

If you have been affected by Welfare Reforms or if you have a particular interest and would like to join the Group, or would like further information, please contact Linda Hunter on 0141 274 6612 or at
