Get involved

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

We have community events – including pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us.

We carry out consultations and host conferences where you can tell us about the big issues.

There's the opportunity to join in a conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter.

We also want tenants to become part of our panels, forums and committees – or become a tenant Board Member.

And there's our annual Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey which asks tenants what we are doing right – and how we can get better.

The choice is yours.

To find out more about getting involved with Dunedin Canmore – and our parent company Wheatley Group – please email our Community Governance Team at consultation@wheatley-group.com

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.

Surveys
 

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
