Join our engagement panel and be a voice for residents!

Engagement / News


We are looking for more residents to join our engagement panel.  No experience is necessary and we’re inviting expressions of interest now!

Our engagement panel is expanding, and we want to hear from residents who are keen to engage with other residents, and Brighter Places to:

  • monitor how well we are doing
  • shape future services
  • review and help us develop policies and plans
  • co-design and support wider resident engagement

Brighter Places puts residents at the heart of everything we do. And this is why our engagement panel is so important. Any tenant, shared owner or leaseholder can apply to become a member of the panel.

This is a fantastic opportunity to have your say about decisions, gain new experiences and meet other residents.

Residents have been involved from day one in everything we do.  Our Engagement Panel is key to decision making. Find out more about who’s on the panel and how the panel began.
