Islington Council

We are Reference Group for Islington Council.​ They are often invited as guests to our meetings, and will feedback any suggestions to their relevant teams. We comment on their specific policies and procedures and their impact on disabled tenants and leaseholders

Some teams we may invite:

  • Repairs Team

  • Anti Social Behaviour Team

  • Access Teams

  • And much more!

A report is produced for Islington Housing Service at the end of this three month cycle and made available to all stakeholders. 

Volunteers

Voluntary & Community sector Services

We understand a lot of tenants often use other organisations. We may bring other organisations into our meetings as part of discussions.

Housing Associations

Though sometimes there can be an overlap, with our panel members often being consulted on new buildings in the borough.
