"I thought that Scrutiny by tenants was an excellent process to be offered by a landlord. I found out that the subject matter of the reviews were chosen by the panel. I enjoy helping to design the process by which we scrutinise a given service"

"I joined because I wanted to get involved with Peabody again, after having a break of over 12 years due to work commitments. I think it is important to work together to change and challenge important issues. I believe that the Residents Council will provide an opportunity to do this."

"I have been involved in Housing matters and issues for a long period of time. When I was a local Councillor for the London Borough of Hackney I was Chair of Housing. At this time I was very active in the campaign for the demolition of system building. I was very active in forming the Residents Association, when our Estate belonged to the Crown Estate Commissioners.

"This Association is now known as the Victoria Park Community Association. As there are different tenures on the Estate it was felt that a 'Community Association' represented all residents in the area. I was very involved in the campaign 'Our Homes are not for Sale' when my then landlord, the Crown Estate, wanted to sell off their three London residential estates to private developers. Peabody purchased them and I was involved in discussions with Peabody and the other Chairs of the three estates."

“The idea of being on a scrutiny panel appealed to me, it is worthwhile and helps to make improvements that are of benefit to residents and Peabody staff.

"I wanted to share my knowledge and experience and do likewise from other panel members. The range of topics that can be covered is diverse, and completing reports is rewarding. This is also a good opportunity to enhance my learning and development."

"Since 1999 I have worked in the public/not for profit sector providing governance advice and secretariat support at Board and Committee level and want to put my skills and experience to more use. I believe that being a Panel member is one way I can do this for the benefit of Peabody communities."

"I moved into a shared ownership flat in Peabody building in 2015 having spent many years renting privately.

"I joined the Residents Council because I wanted to turn what could be a frustrating experience into a productive one by sharing my perspective as a resident and because I wanted to be involved in the decisions that affected me. Having been through the process of learning about and owning a shared ownership flat I am particularly interested in learning more about how the policy works and how to support others through accessing the sometimes confusing, but very valuable scheme which can play such a big part in supporting young people onto the housing ladder."
