We’re bringing back Neighbourhoods Walkabouts because it was important to you that we have a visible presence in your community, and that you can get to know your local officers.
Our staff also wanted more opportunities to connect with tenants and local residents and be able to pick up some practical outcomes, like checking our green spaces, and logging visible external repairs and tenancy issues.
Our walkabouts are the perfect time to speak to us about your community, find out what we’re doing in your area, highlight any issues, and just generally have a chat!
Partners and other local services are being invited to come along too.
We held the first Walkabout on April 19th in Merseybank, Chorlton, where there was a great turnout from the Southway team, local councillors, partners including BMCA and local residents.
