Join flow at Riverside
06 Aug 2020 by Leona
If you live on Millfields or Harvills Hawthorn estates, there’s a chance to really make a difference in your local community.
Riverside Housing Association would like any residents aged 14+ to consider becoming part of the team, helping out with social events and maintaining the estates as safe, inviting communities.
As a social landlord Riverside provides support to people of all ages and circumstances, acting as managing agents for Sandwell Council.
For the first time they’re looking for Volunteer Youth Reps as well as adult representatives to join in, or even initiate, a wide variety of activities.
Community Engagement Officer Denise Heginbotham said: “We’re looking for helpers at our events such as celebrations, our film club, exercise classes. We also have funds available to spend on our estates, so they can collect ideas and make suggestions for improvements, and help residents to apply for funding. We provide full training for the role, with other opportunities to take courses in first aid, fire marshalling and dementia for example. We provide passes and uniforms, so they really do become part of our team.”
If you require further information please call or email Denise on 07870 809387 Deniseann.firstname.lastname@example.org
