Role and Opportunity Details  (to apply for this role you must be aged 18+)

Tenant Voice – Neighbourhood Champion

  • Do you take pride in your home and community?
  • Do you care about your neighbourhood being a clean, safe, and friendly place to live?
  • Do you want to make a positive contribution and help make things better for your community?
  • Would you like support to implement tenant led activities?

If you answered yes to the questions above, then we are looking for people like you to join our team of Neighbourhood Champions.
The role of Neighbourhood Champion is to give a voice to tenants and residents who reside on Wigan Council Housing neighbourhoods.  This will give tenants and residents a platform to engage in a positive and constructive relationship with Wigan Council and influence how their homes and communities are managed.

The role is not a platform for personal issues or to discuss past grievances, but to focus on future Housing services and ensure the voice of the tenant is heard and acted upon.
