Federation Outreach

Out and About Across East Ayrshire…

Over the last few months, we embarked on a road trip with Kevin, the Council’s Customer Liaison Officer, and Sharon from Tenants Information Service (TIS) to meet tenants, residents, and community organisations, find out views, priorities and all the wonderful work going on in local areas and to let folk know more about the Federation, tenant engagement, participation, and scrutiny opportunities. So far, we have visited, and met with people from Catrine, Craigens, Dalrymple, Darvel, Drongan, Hurlford, Keir Hardie Hill, Kilmarnock College, New Farm Loch, Newmilns, Netherthird, Patna, Rankinston, Shortlees, Skerrington and Stair as well as meeting groups in Centre Stage, where we are based.

From this we have held successful Estate Walkabouts where tenants and residents met with housing and communities’ staff, elected members and others to identify potential improvements to their communities and set up new Consultation Forums in John Morton Crescent, Darvel and Rankinston.

We plan to visit more communities and organisations throughout the year. If you are having a meeting or event, we would love an invitation to come see you and your members. Please get in touch via email to secretary@eafederation.com or call us on 01563 631000.
