Get involved

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

November is our Month of Engagement where we'll shine a spotlight on the opportunities for you to get involved.

You'll find out more about how you can have your say - and highlight the benefits and value this brings to us all.

We want tenants to help shape our services. There are lots of different ways for you to have your say about your community, Barony and the way we work.

It is also a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.

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

You might prefer to join in a conversation with us on Twitter – or you can become part of our panels, forums or committees. You may also want to apply to become a tenant Board Member.

Our annual tenant conference is being held on 29 November.

The conference is a great way to hear more about opportunities to influence the decisions we make, our priorities and our rent setting proposals for 2021/22.

To find out more information, or to let us know if you are interested in attending, contact Harry Woodward on 0131 624 5629 or by email at harry.woodward@dunedincanmore.org.uk

Customer Inspectors
 

Customer Inspectors work across Barony's 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.
