Resident talking to Peabody employee

We’re looking for enthusiastic and engaged people to join our Residents Council.

We're setting up a resident group to help us review Peabody's services and ensure that residents' views are represented at the very top of the organisation. This replaces our successful Scrutiny Panel (read Scrutiny Panel reviews here).

The Residents Council will look at customer-facing strategies and policies and undertake detailed reviews of individual services. It's a great opportunity to have an input into Peabody’s services and strategies and gain skills and experience in working as a strategic group.

  • Attend six core meetings a year
  • Be committed to working on scrutiny reviews up to four hours a month (depending on the view and level of involvement)
  • Work well within a team
  • Be objective about issues that affect residents across Peabody
  • Have a positive attitude towards working with Peabody

PLEASE NOTE: the deadline for applications to join the Residents Council is 5pm, m  22 July 2016
