The Chorus Homes Street Representative Scheme has been running since 2011.
It uses the skills and experience of local people to create safer and better neighbourhoods for them to live in. Since then the scheme has expanded to include 'Block Representatives', encouraging people who live in apartment blocks to get more actively invloved with the community within their block.
Our 180 Street Representatives and Block Representatives are creating safer and better places to live. Each Representative volunteers to communicate issues on behalf of their local area, which are then logged and followed up by Chorus Homes and other relevant partner agencies. Representatives also voice enquiries and suggestions for community development. Hundreds of enquiries have been actioned since the scheme began in 2011.
Additionally, each representative is encouraged to communicate ideas for positive activities or events and we help them to put their ideas into practice in their community. This provides local people a platform to share their agenda for community development.
This scheme gives you a unique opportunity to have your voice heard as issues or ideas arise. You will also meet like-minded people, giving them the potential to work together in order to have a greater impact for the benefit of your community. Chorus Homes and partnering community groups are committed to supporting Street Representatives to achieve great things in their communities.
