It's as simple as that. We really do value your views on our services and about any changes that might affect you and the communities that you live in.
And it's a commitment that starts right at the top as our Board and governance structures reflect our dedication to co-regulation. Of our 12 Non Executive Directors, 5 are Trent & Dove tenants. We believe this continues to keep the customer at the heart of everything we do.
Here are just a few amazing community-led projects we are involved with.
The Kingfisher Project
The Kingfisher Project had a busy year in 2013 with school pupils helping out with the community garden and clearance of the embankment along with fun days for the whole community. A similar calendar of activities is planned for 2014 as well as the creation of a large community garden at Beresford Close.
Wishes for Winshill
Wishes for Winshill held its usual mix of fun events and trip to the coast. Their community café, Coffeecom, is open to the whole community on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday from 9.00am to 12 noon. Free wifi access and the use of a computer offer all customers an opportunity to get on line.
Warwick St Community Allotment
With the help of funding and support from employees of Interserve as well as local volunteers this community allotment scheme is now up and running. Featuring raised beds, a shed and greenhouse, the scheme provides space for tenants to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Some of the plots are also being cultivated by volunteers and the produce will be used to provide low cost vegetable bags for sale in the community or for donation to local food banks.
