How can I get involved?
If you’re one of our residents and would like to help us to improve our services, then you are in the right place.
We’re keen for our residents to be involved in the key decisions that we make here at Paradigm.
You can get involved with something quick and easy – like a survey about a service you’ve received, or something more long-term like being a part of our Residents Forum, where you’ll help to monitor and improve our performance.
If you’re thinking of getting involved but don’t have a lot of spare time, you can still make your voice heard.
We’ll support you
When you help us, we’ll provide you with the support you need – whether that’s reimbursing your travel expenses, contributing towards your childcare or carer costs, or setting a meeting time or date that suits you best.
We’ll even arrange your transport if you don’t have your own, will provide disabled access at all meeting venues.
If you’ve decided how you would like to get involved or want to find out more, contact our Resident Involvement team on 01628 811862 or contact us.
You can find out about the opportunities to get involved with us below.
Resident and community associations
These are local groups formed around a street, block of flats or an estate. We have a Code of Practice for resident groups that explains how to set one up and what support you can expect from us. You need to ensure that sufficient neighbours are interested in forming a group before contacting us. Please see our Residents and Community Associations page.
Working alongside others members, you’ll help us to identify the most critical resident issues and regulate our performance.
The group meets approximately five times a year, and each member is paid a nominal fee.
If you’re one of our residents or are not a Paradigm resident but are a homeowner, visit our Current Vacancies page to see the latest opportunities.
Help us from the comfort of your own home (or by post or email) by reading and giving us feedback on any new documents, leaflets or literature that we’re looking to send out to our residents.
