Be involved

There are many ways you can get involved with Bolton at Home.

  • drop into one of our UCAN centres to find out what volunteering opportunities are available,
  • help improve your community by joining a community group or Tenant & Resident Association,
  • provide feedback on our services in a way that suits you by joining our Voices,
  • take part in improving services by joining our Scrutiny Group or
  • you can take part in making decisions by applying to join our Operations Committee or become a Board Member.

Help us improve our services

  • If you are over 55 you can come along to our Seniors in Partnership group. Here you can share experiences and discuss local issues and service. Contact our Activities Co-ordinator Lesley Tyrer on 01204 329678 for more details.
  • Join our Voices and tell us about your experience as a customer. Whether you’re a tenant, resident or leaseholder, you’re our customer and your views are important to us. The result? You can make a real difference to our services for all customers. Some people are put off because they think they’ll have to give up too much time or they feel they might not have the knowledge to take an active part. Don’t worry your involvement can be as much or as little as you wish. Sharing your views doesn’t take much time and you can do it by phone, email, social media, post, by attending a one-off discussion or join a temporary group to talk about the things you're interested in. (We’ll cover any reasonable costs).
