We want you! Join our engagement panel and help influence decisions at Brighter Places

Blog / News


We’re looking for more residents to join our engagement panel.  No experience is necessary!

We are expanding our engagement panel and would love to hear from residents who are keen to meet and work with other residents and Brighter Places. As a member of the panel you’ll be a voice for residents – helping to monitor how well we are doing, shaping future services and inputting on policies, plans and new initiatives.

What’s in it for you?

Brighter Places puts residents at the heart of everything we do and our engagement panel is key to developing services that residents want and need.  Any resident, shared owner or leaseholder can apply to become a member.

This is a great opportunity, not just to influence decisions from a resident perspective, but to gain new experiences and meet other residents.

Find out more about the panel, how it began and who’s on the panel.
