Resident involvement is how you, as tenant, leaseholder or resident, can influence how the council provides services to you. It is a two-way process, which means that we will share information and ideas with you, and we will listen to your suggestions and comments. Successful resident involvement should lead to improvements in the services you receive and help the council to make better decisions.
We would like to involve as many residents across Birmingham as possible. Each district has a tenant participation officer whose job it is to help you become involved and to support the residents who are already involved.
How you can get involved
There are lots of ways that you can get involved. Some of these activities only take up a little of your time, and many of them take place inside your own home.
Other activities can take longer or happen more frequently and might involve meetings and events. Getting involved at this level gives you an even greater say in the changes we make to our services and offers a chance to meet new people and learn new skills.
No matter what level of commitment you are able to give, there is an opportunity for you to have your say and make a difference to our housing services. We can also help you with out-of-pocket expenses such as travel and childcare.
The Menu of Involvement attached below explains all of the different ways that you can get involved and share your views.
