Communications Checked

This group enables Croydon Council tenants and leaseholders to provide feedback on the publicity material, information and online content that is created for them. The role can be carried out online so there is no need to attend meetings. We can also help if you are not confident in using new technology or need some support getting involved online. Find out more.

Estate walkabouts

Join your local housing team on estate walkabouts and work with us to improve services where you live. A great way to flag any issues affecting communal areas such as green spaces, security, rubbish, fly-tipping and repairs. Find out more.

Focus groups

One-off groups set up to focus on a specific issue for a limited time.

Housing complaints panel

If a resident is unhappy with the outcome of our housing complaints process, this panel takes an independent look at the case or suggests ideas about how to resolve the complaint. Find out more.

Housing scrutiny panel

A small group of residents work with us to independently review a service. You’ll interview officers, write reports and make recommendations to service managers. An ongoing commitment as the group meets fortnightly. Find out more.

Local resident groups
