There are lots of ways to get involved – no matter your age, background or where you live.
We have community events – including pop-up roadshows – throughout the year where you can come along and talk to us.
We carry out consultations and host conferences where you can tell us about the big issues.
There's the opportunity to join in a conversation with us on Facebook.
We also want tenants to become part of our panels, forums and committees – or become a tenant Board Member.
And there's our annual Tenants’ Satisfaction Survey which asks tenants what we are doing right – and how we can get better.
The choice is yours.
Find out more about our panels, forums and committees below.
It is important for us to know the views of our tenants and those communities we serve. You can influence our decisions by becoming a Member. As a Member, you can help us to achieve our aim of providing good quality homes at affordable costs.
The cost for membership is £1 which is non-refundable. For further information please see our membership policy.

The panel looks closely at how WLHP and other parts of Wheatley Group performs.
It's made up of customers from across the Group who scrutinise reports and meet with senior staff to review performances.
Over the past year the panel was involved in the design of the new MyHousing allocations system and reviewed the repairs service from the point of view of a customer.
The panel produces a statement each year. This helps inform WlHP's annual Report to Tenants.
Customer Inspectors work across our parent company, Wheatley Group. They review services from the point of view of a customer. This includes visiting sites and interviewing customers.
They focus on key areas which are important to tenants, including repairs, customer service and complaints. The Inspectors make recommendations which we use to help improve services.
