Get involved

There are lots of ways to get involved – no matter your age, background or where you live.

We have community events – including pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us.

We carry out consultations and host conferences where you can tell us about the big issues.

There's the opportunity to join in a conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter.

We also want tenants to become part of our panels, forums and committees – or become a tenant Board Member.

And there's our annual Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey which asks tenants what we are doing right – and how we can get better.

The choice is yours.

To find out more about getting involved with Loretto – and our parent company Wheatley Group – please email us at consultation@wheatley-group.com

Scrutiny Panel
 

The panel looks closely at how Loretto and other parts of Wheatley Group performs.

It's made up of customers from across the Group who scrutinise reports and meet with senior staff to review service and performance.

The panel produces a statement each year. This helps inform Loretto's annual Report to Tenants.

For further information, contact Morgan English on 0141 274 8379 or email morgan.english@wheatley-group.com

Customer Inspectors
 

Customer Inspectors work across our parent company, Wheatley Group. They review services from the point of view of a customer. This includes visiting sites and interviewing customers.

They focus on key areas which are important to tenants, including repairs, customer service and complaints. The Inspectors make recommendations which we use to help improve services.

Registered Tenant Organisations (RTOs)
 

Tenant groups who meet our conditions can become a Registered Tenant Organisation (RTO). RTOs can get direct grant funding and apply for 'top-up grants' to help them with one-off costs. They represent the interests of customers in local areas.

They also carry out a range of activities including organising events to improve their neighbourhoods. Find more information at:

Polish Forum and African Housing Forums
 

Forums give customers from minority communities a voice to shape our services. Their views help us create forward plans for each forum.

Priorities for the forum include housing services, employability and access to support services for customers.

For further information, please contact:

Community Action Group
 

Loretto customers have developed an Action Plan which focuses on customer priorities.  Themes include safety and security, community and the environment.

Meetings are held every two months in Glasgow city centre. To get involved, please contact christopher.walker@lorettoha.co.uk

Welfare Reforms Tenant Advisory Group
 

This group plays an important role in working with us to develop activities that help to lessen the impact of welfare reforms on our customers.

Areas of particular interest include fuel poverty, debt and the provision of information and advice. The group meets approximately four times a year.

If you have been affected by welfare reforms, or if you have a particular interest and would like to join the group, or would like further information, contact Andrew Weir on 07385 401577 or by email at andrew.weir@gha.org.uk
