Castle Vale Community Housing (CVCH), together with Castle Vale Community Partnerships (CVCP), would like to invite residents to attend a community drop-in session on Thursday 3 February to discuss local issues and concerns, community ideas or just have a coffee and a friendly chat with the CVCH team.
The community drop-in session will take place between 10 am and 12 pm at Meeting Place Café, St Gerard’s Church.
Engaging with residents is at the heart of CVCH’s philosophy and it is hoped that as restrictions lift, the drop-in sessions will become a regular fixture where residents can make their views and voices heard.
The sessions will also provide an opportunity for interested residents to participate in initiatives such as the CVCH Scrutiny Panel, which examines and challenges how well the organisation is doing.
CVCH partners will also attend the drop-in sessions including members of the Compass Support team, who can facilitate referrals to wider health and wellbeing services for the community. Where possible, other organisations, such as West Midlands Police will be available to advise residents on any security concerns.
Castle Vale Community Housing Resident Engagement Officer, Vik Mistry, said:
Here at CVCH, we strive to make lives and communities better. We want our services to meet the needs and expectations of the people who live in our homes, and we are hoping through a coffee and a chat, we can provide an open opportunity where any resident can stop by to share their thoughts and concerns.
We would love for local tenants to get more involved in community matters and influence our decision-making and services. By participating, they can provide their feedback, views and opinions on our performance, services and any plans for the future.
Residents will be updated on the ideas and feedback from the drop-in meetings and how they will be used to improve CVCH services.
