We have been your street voices since 2002.  We have met many of you, but none of our new residents.  Please remember we are here for you if you have a problem or just want to chat.

John and I work hard for you all behind the scenes, making sure our services are the best they can be.

I am on the Board of South Essex Homes. I also attend three focus groups on your behalf they are Repairs and Voids, Planned and Resident Involvement/Audit.   I am also coordinator for your decent homes work and attend the contractors meetings.

I am a Resident Void inspector and it is a very worthwhile and rewarding job, there are a few of us doing it.  If any of you fancy taking the training and doing the job please  contact:- bradleystaff@seh.southend.gov.uk

I also sit on the Tenant Led Panel, Reinvestment Panel, Core Group (that is where all the contractors get together to take forward our partnering).

On your behalf John and I attend The Tenant Voice Association and we are nominated to have a voice and a vote on the Southend Tenants and Residents Federation. The Federation is made up of all the associations in South Essex Homes.

Achievements: – I have got the resident to talk to each other to make the area a much better place to live in.

At present: – I am currently working on setting up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme and produce a newsletter every 3 months.

I provide information that would otherwise would not be available to other residents. residents then have a local resident who they can speak to about any concerns they may have, also  they sometimes need a point of contact when things go wrong and feel they do not want to contact South Essex Homes direct.

Being the local Street/Block voice is important as it allows all parties to help each other.

Norman has been a Block voice for 20 years

My name is David Living and I am Normans deputy and act for him in his absence.

I have occasionally helped Norman with leaflet drops and walkabouts, last year I was supporting people unable to do much.

The role of a Street/Block voice is important as many residents do not understand what is going on in their area and a little help can go a long way.

Achievements: – We have formed a Neighbourhood Watch area.

Held Charity Coffee mornings, Quiz Night for our area and other sheltered units in Southend and Neighbours Meals.

We hold regular residents meetings, produce newsletters.

We safeguard elderly Residents and give support to many other residents as and when necessary, we also support various outside and organisations when needed.

At Present: – One of our concerns is the speed of traffic going along Snakes Lane and are currently monitoring the situation by doing ‘Speed Checks’, we are currently arranging dates to start again. We also help with Sheltered Housings residents with their gardens.

As well as publishing a monthly newsletter we hold meetings every 3 months for residents of Snakes Lane.

Our role is very important to us as we are working to get the areas residents involved in the community, caring for the area and those who live in it.

It is in my nature to help people and find it very rewarding. Health issues sometimes make days hard so helping others helps me as well.

I have met a lot on nice people in my role and learn a lot of new things that I can pass onto others as well as making a lot of good friends.
