There are lots of ways to get involved – no matter your age, background or where you live.
It is also a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.
You can become part of our panels, forums or committees. You may also want to apply to become a tenant Board Member.
We hold community events – including litter picks and pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us.
We also carry out consultations and tenant conferences which let you have a say in some of the big issues for tenants.
Our Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey, which is carried out each year, asks tenants their views on what we are doing right – and how we can get better.
To find out more about getting involved with Barony – and our parent company Wheatley Group – and join our panels, forums or committees, please email our Community Governance Team at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
