What is it?
By being a Community Neighbour you would be the point of contact for us in your local community. You can assist your neighbours by reporting repairs, keep an eye on the area generally and bring any necessary matters to our attention. Community Neighbours are important, they are people scattered throughout our communities who are there to look out for their fellow neighbours and help those in need. We hope that all our tenants look out for one another, and many of our Community Neighbours may look through the role description and see described something that they have been doing for years, however, by being a Community Neighbour, we know who you are and hopefully by communicating with you, we can help you and you can help us. This is not a time consuming activity as it is up to you how much or how little time is spent.
Why do you need me?
We would like tenants to join our network of Neighbours to help build stronger communities and assist other tenants who may need a little support. As you live in the community you will know the neighbourhood and so understand it better than we do.
What’s In it for me?
A sense of community, being able to help others. Being a point of contact for Suffolk Housing you will get to know our business better. This could be used as a stepping stone for other tenant involvement activities.
