Community partners

Would you like to become a community partner and help make your neighbourhood cleaner, greener and safer? As a community partner you can make a real difference.

Community partners play an important role in being the voice of their local community by letting us know about issues where they live, improving their neighbourhood, and representing their neighbours.

Community partners can access free training in a wide range of subjects. They also attend events and meetings with other community partners. It's a great opportunity to learn, develop your skills and meet people.

If you become a community partner you can help your community and us by representing your neighbours, joining your neighbourhood action team officer on estate inspections and reporting any local issues such as cleaning, maintenance or antisocial behaviour.

Community partner Janet Dhliweyo said: "I've been a community partner since 2005. I like to keep our estate nice and enjoy helping people where I live. I go to estate inspections and I also keep an eye on the cleaning of the communal areas. I have training and support to carry out my role. For instance, I recently did a Heartstart course where I learnt lifesaving skills. I'm looking forward to working with the community partner network."
