10. Training

We are very proud of our commitment to build up the capacity of our involved tenants who are both new and experienced.

This is done through training, coaching, mentoring, and working with officers. A programme of training is arranged every three to six months, with formal training such as committee skills, chairing meetings, and setting up a residents association.

We also work with Exeter City Council, Mid Devon District Council and members of the Involvement Devon Group to arrange joint training.

We actively seek out funding for training and free training events for tenants to support tenant involvement. We will be using events for younger people to identify training needs. We will arrange or support reasonable training requests. For details of training events or suggestions for the future please contact the tenant participation team on tenantparticipation@eastdevon.gov.uk.
