Housing's Community Facebook Group

This group is open to all who receive a service from the Housing Department, this private group will enable you to share your opinions from the comfort of your home; during your daily commute, or whenever you have few moments to spare throughout the day. However and whenever you choose to share, we want to you to be part of the Housing Community Group.Housing community facebook group with image of southfields flower courtyard

The Housing Community Group will enable us to ask for your ideas and thoughts on services you receive and ensure your opinions are part of discussions when service improvements are being considered. 

What's inside this private group? Our initial plans include polls, pictures, podcasts and Q&A sessions with staff plus much more. We're also keen to hear how you want to see the group develop and will be asking for your thoughts on how the community should grow. 

You will also get to hear about other ways you can get involved, including roles you can play within your communities

You MUST answer all the questions to join the group. If not, your request will be declined. 

The questions:

  • Your full name that the Housing department knows you by?
  • What is your date of birth?
  • What is your house number and postcode?
  • Do you agree to adhere to the group admin rules?

This will make sure only our Housing Customers are accepted and help to ensure the group is a safe and welcoming environment.

FACEBOOK GROUP (Opens in the new window)

(Note: The group will not enable you to resolve issues personal to yourself and this must be done through contacting the Council in the usual way.)
