New Year’s Greetings from Rejhan Meshekrani, Chair of the Wornington Green Residents’ Steering Group (RSG). “I’ve been the Chair of the RSG since July 2014 and I am really happy to have the chance to work with the Independent Tenants’ Adviser (ITA) again over the next year. The RSG works really closely with the ITA. They are very much involved with the RSG members as well as the Wornington Green residents, giving us lots of support and advice and helping us to become more independent as a group in our own right.
The ITA offers quite a few services including twice monthly outreach sessions on Wornington Green as well as weekly advice surgeries. Please make sure you read all the information leaflets delivered by the ITA and look out for their posters so you are aware about what they do and when they are around. They can listen, help and support you with any issues, regardless of whether you live in the existing estate or in the new development. They are here for us all and always ready to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact them.
I passionately believe that the regeneration isn’t just about bricks and mortar but also about building a new community, one in which everyone is included. To do this it’s really important that residents have a strong voice so that their concerns are listened to when it matters.
Finally, I’d like to wish you and your families a very happy and prosperous 2015!”
ITA Residents’ Surgery
The ITA Residents’ Advice Surgery takes place every Thursday from 2pm to 4pm in the Residents’ Room, (signposted from Wornington Road). The surgery provides one-to-one confidential advice on any issues you may have about the regeneration. Book an appointment to see us! If you can’t attend the surgery contact the ITA to make an appointment for a time that suits you or to arrange a home visit.
The next meeting of the Residents’ Steering Group will take place on Thursday 26 February at 6.15pm at the Venture Centre and will focus on the preparations underway for Phase 2 of the redevelopment.
