We want to hear from you!
Did you know that homes cause 25% of carbon emissions?
We’ve set ambitious targets to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and make them more sustainable, which should also reduce heating bills and improve their warmth and comfort for residents.
Who are we
The green panel is a panel of residents who work with us on our energy efficiency programme to make homes more energy efficient and ensure we’re doing our bit in the drive for a more sustainable future and help us save the planet!
We meet four times a year and are very keen to increase membership and hear more voices.
Join the team?
We want to ensure that our panel is as representative as possible of the neighbourhoods where we work. We therefore particularly welcome applications from groups who are currently underrepresented on our panel, including:
- Residents who are Black, Asian or from an ethnic minority background
- Residents between the age of 18 to 30
- Parents, guardians and/or carers (where your dependent lives at home with you)
The Government has launched a training programme that’s empowering social housing tenants including settle residents to hold their landlords to account.
