As a Link Wentworth resident, there are lots of ways to be involved in your local community and be a voice for other residents. Read below to see two ways you can be involved.
Introducing Link Wentworth’s Resilience Committee
Written by Susan Lucock and Mary Conyard
Hi, we’re Mary and Susan and we make up Link Wentworth’s Resilience Committee. We are Link Wentworth tenants based in Western Sydney and we’re also part of our local Tenant Advisory Group (TAG).
The Resilience Committee evolved out of the Flood Preparedness Project, which is facilitated by Inner Sydney Voice and Infrastructure NSW. This project created an awareness for tenants who might not be aware of how to prepare for life’s ups and downs.
Through Link Wentworth’s Resilience Committee, we hope to give fellow tenants some tips on how to cope with life’s
challenges, including constructive ideas on preparing for floods, bushfires and other natural disasters. Our input
will be included in each upcoming edition of the Link Wentworth newsletter.
We would love for you to contribute if you have any ideas—after all, information and communication is the key to help us all be resilient. Please email [email protected] to get in touch.
Update from Chatswood TAG
Written by Mark Shalovsky – Member, Chatswood Tenant Advisory Group
Your local Tenant Advisory Group (TAG) is a forum for all tenants to comment on services, policies and procedures and this will continue with the new, merged organisation, Link Wentworth. In the last year, members of the Chatswood TAG have been able to:
- comment on a number of policies
- review complaints handling procedures and suggest
- give feedback for communications sent out to residents about
the merger and the new logo and branding.
In July this year, members from our local TAGs will be able to attend the annual conference of the Community Housing Industry Association.
Please join your local TAG to be a voice for residents. Residents living in any Link Wentworth Housing managed property are welcome to join. To find out more, speak to your Community Programs/Sustainable Communities Team.
