This year, East Devon District Council tenants and leaseholders conference will take place on Monday 21 October 2019 at the Westpoint Conference Room, Clyst St Mary, Exeter, EX5 1DJ, from 10am – 4.30pm. FREE refreshments, lunch and transport can be provided.
Caring for our community will highlight the difficulties our tenants, young and old, have regarding providing care for a loved one and where to find support. Also there for you will be numerous stalls to visit including:
Action East Devon - Headlight
PALS – RD&E
Carers Direct - DCC
We are inviting young people of East Devon to take part this year as caring for someone is an issue for all ages.
The committee have special speakers to discuss matters concerning caring in the community and how our Mobile Support Officers and Home Safeguard can provide assistance to our residents. A representative from Devon Carers will be sharing their knowledge on how and where to get support if needed.
We will also be inviting the new repairs contractor, Ian Williams Ltd, who will introducing themselves to tenants and leaseholders, advising us how they will be looking after your homes for many years to come and what good work they do in the community.
The Conference Committee has listened to your feedback from last year’s conference and set aside most of the morning for tenants to ‘meet and greet’ housing staff, councillors, contractors and guest visitors. You may have one or two questions you need to ask them and this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
The day will finish with the presentation of an awards for a tenant, young person and a member of staff and a free raffle.
If you are a tenant and you would like to reserve your place, please complete the booking form enclosed with this magazine or contact Tenant Participation (details on page 2). Don’t forget to give us your nominations for the awards.
