Greenwich

Get involved in Greenwich community

If you're a council tenant or leaseholder in the borough of Greenwich, you can get involved with the local community by:

  • attending housing panels and meetings
  • helping us test our housing services
  • starting a tenants' association
  • participating in our estate inspections.

Attend housing panels and meetings

The Royal Borough of Greenwich holds regular meetings and events for council tenants so they can get involved in the decisions that affect their homes and local community.

There are many ways you can get involved from joining your local housing panel or tenants' association to attending focus groups about particular issues.

Email community-participation@royalgreenwich.gov.uk to get our monthly listing of community events.

Help us test our housing services

The Royal Borough of Greenwich regularly tests its housing services with the help of 'housing mystery shoppers' who are tenants or leaseholders of the borough.

Participants test key areas of housing services and then fill in a survey. The testing may be online, by phone or by visiting the council. Shoppers get a voucher as a thank you for their time and effort.

Start a tenants' association

A tenants' association is a group of local residents who come together from a neighbourhood, an estate, a block or a community with a common purpose.
