The purpose of our One Voice Forum is to help us stay up to date and informed of the changing views, needs, desires and aspirations of its tenants, residents and of the wider Doncaster community.

The One Voice Forum is an engagement forum for tenants, St Leger tenant board members and TARA representatives for consultation and discussion on service delivery and key strategic and policy changes to make sure there is tenant communication, perspective and engagement.

It's there to empower our tenants and TARAs to make sure that we are providing housing services that meet customer needs and are delivered to the highest standard. 

We need more of your voices. The One Voice Forum is already having a positive impact and have been involved in consultations such as Housing Management Policy, Tenancy Agreement, Repairs Policy, Tenant Voice Charter, Corporate Plan and our Damp, Mould and Condensation Policy

If you are interested in joining and want to have your say in how we deliver our services in the future, then please contact us on 01302 862743 or email us on customer.involvement@stlegerhomes.co.uk
