If you’re involved in these activities then you’ll be helping to report on how we’re doing as well as making suggestions and recommendations for improvements.
Depending on what you choose to do, you may get out onto our estates to make checks, come to our offices or community centres to contribute to development meetings, work with us to create and run your own community events or volunteer at our UCAN centres.
These activities need a firm commitment of time from you. They will typically mean a few hours at a time, a couple of times a month over the year.
We have colour coded these yellow on our 'Ways to be involved' guide.
Shaping and reporting activities include:
An inspector calls
Our Customer Inspectors are customer volunteers who check out our services in various ways. You can choose a way that suits you best.
Our Green Inspectors are customer volunteers who carry out regular environmental checks in their local area.
Young people going green
You people in our communities can also play an important role in keeping our streets looking at their best. Junior green inspectors started so they can get involved in spotting things that need fixing in their estate environment.
Get active against crime
If you are keen to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour in your area then this activity is for you. You can get involved in a way to suit you and you can offer as little or as much time as you want.
Runing a training course
If you have skills and experiences that you would like to share and knowledgable on something that could be useful to others we will give you all the support you need to deliver and provide new courses.
Be a buddy
If you are already involved and think that you could be on hand to provide help and guidance to new volunteers being a buddy could be for you.
Engaging with art
If you or your community group are interested in getting involved in creative activities then our Housing Arts Officers are keen to help.
Championing our improvement programme
If you are interested in being involved in making decisions about how we schedule the improvements to the homes we manage then this is for you.
If you are over 55 then come along to our Forum 55+. You'll have the chance to meet and talk to other older customers and Bolton at Home staff. Your feedback will play an important role in the development of services for older people.
Working together to make things better
Why not attend a tenant and resident association to see whether you want to have an active role in making things better, meeting your neighbours, share concerns adn suggest how problems or issues can be resolved.
Getting it together
Every year we host a full day event which is open to all customers. If you come along, you'll be better informed about what's going on at Bolton at Home, our plans for the future and how you can influence and shape the decisions we make.
Why not identify any problems and discuss your concerns with your local housing staff on a walkabout around your estate?
If you are over 55 and a BME customer come along to our ASHA forum. You'll have the chance to meet and talk with a friendly group of other older BME customers and Bolton at Home staff about your experiences and concerns around our services. We can provide an interpreter on request.
Our design specification group meet twice a year to look at and comment on materials for ongoing improvements works.
Life on film
Capture on film anything that you think that needs our attention or the great work that is going on in your community.
