This group of eight residents will plan an 18-month rolling programme to scrutinise our services, agreeing what’s involved and who’ll do it. Then you’ll look at what the results show.
In the past, residents have looked at services including grounds maintenance and disabled adaptations, influencing how they’re delivered today.
Please take a look at the full details on what the role involves and the terms of reference.
When the group will meet
The Scrutiny Coordination Group will meet for a few hours about six times a year. The meetings will be at times and places which are the most convenient. Although this is a voluntary position, residents will get training and support (including IT equipment if it’s needed) and out-of-pocket expenses.
Is this something you’d like to do?
You don’t need any formal qualifications to get involved – we’re just looking for someone who:
takes an interest in our residents’ priorities so views are heard as the scrutiny programme is developed
enjoys working positively and productively with others and can contribute ideas and views to help shape our services
can use independent judgement to define why each scrutiny is needed and what it will cover
can monitor the quality and progress ofscrutiny reviews
can talk with others, promote us and bring back examples of how a service is being done well elsewhere
is passionate and committed to our social purpose and can inspire and motivate others.
If you think you’d like to become part our Scrutiny group, all you need to do at the moment is register your interest by 10 February 2016. One our Resident Involvement team will then ring to chat you through the role and answer any questions.
