SDC is introducing an exciting new approach to tenant involvement; giving two tenants the chance to represent tenants’ views at the
council’s housing committee and influence decisions potentially affecting the lives of 7,000 tenants. One appointment has already been made, and we are now looking for a second tenant representative. This unique opportunity is open to all tenants. An Independent Tenant Advisor from the Housing Quality Network (HQN)will carry out the selection of the best candidate. The closing date for applications is 8th January 2017. Click here for more details.

A THANK YOU from Caroline Hill.
A HUGE THANK You to everyone who supported the Nelson Trust Toiletry Bag Collection. I am overwhelmed at the generosity and kindness of Woodchester. You managed to collect 117 Bags.
I know every woman who turns up at one of the Nelson Trust Centres will appreciate your generosity.
When I delivered the first 50 bags to the Gloucester Centre a woman walked into Reception asking for a hot drink and a shower. On being offered one of your bags she burst into tears and said if only she could thank everyone but she couldn’t afford a card.
John Trolan- Chef Executive of Nelson Trust said:-
“It is amazing the difference these bags make to our clients who arrive with nothing. Not only to their self-esteem but also knowing they are being supported by the community. Your generosity has been wonderful.”
