Housing Disability Panel (HDP)

The HDP is a group of local disabled tenants and residents who provide scrutiny and feedback on Islington Housing Services policy, procedure and practise. The Panel is jointly facilitated by Islington Housing Service and DAII, and meets on a monthly basis. 

 

In order to elicit their views on improving current services and developing new services, the Panel works to engage with:

  • Local disabled tenants & residents

  • Their families & support networks

  • Council & other statutory Services

  • Voluntary & Community Sector services

  • The wider community

 

The Panel works with these groups to identify:

  • what’s working/not working locally & why

  • key priorities for disabled tenants & residents

  • key tasks to achieving these priorities

  • what role tenants & residents have in achieving these priorities

  • what resources or assets are already available  

 

The Panel works with groups of tenants & residents either as geographical areas (e.g. estates or postcodes); or as borough-wide service users (e.g. the Repairs service) over three months. A report is produced for Islington Housing Service at the end of this three month cycle and made available to all stakeholders.
