Community groups


There are community groups which we help support. You can either join one that is already in existence or create a group in your local area with help from us.

Community groups or special interest groups are made up of residents who have similar interests and provide community activities. You can either create a group in your local area with help from us or join one that is already in existence.

These groups work in a similar way to tenant and resident associations. The only difference is that the groups are made up of residents who have the same needs as each other in some way.

Current groups provide activities such as photography workshops, arts and crafts classes and social events.

Special interest groups also get involved in helping us to shape our services.
