If you are interested in giving on-going feedback on how estate services are delivered in your area, you can become a resident contact for your neighbourhood. Our area offices also hold local meetings and consult residents on specific local issues. You can also request a local meeting if there are issues you would like to discuss with EMHA and other residents.
EMHA supports community development and works closely with residents and local partners to promote local activities. Involvement on our biggest estate, Agar Nook in Coalville, is supported through the Agar Nook Community Centre which provides a wide range of activities for residents of all ages. You can look at their website by clicking here.
The tenant-led improvements (TLI) budget allows residents to apply for funding for improvements that they would like to see for their area, with the guidance of the housing officer. Applications are reviewed twice a year. Please see below for details on how to apply.
Resident's Associations are democratic organisations enabling residents to get together either for social purposes or to tackle issues relating to their neighbourhoods, their estates, or their homes. They give residents increased opportunities to meet formally with staff and to influence decisions about their homes and estates.
Resident's Associations can operate for many years, or can be formed for a short period of time to tackle a single issue or event such as the modernisation of a group of homes.
We offer start up grants and other funding, training, help and support to tenants wishing to set up a Resident's Association.
Please see below for a guide to setting up a Residents' Association.
