Joint Training for Residents & Staff at Habinteg

Staff and Residents of Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd.

Staff and Residents of Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd.

Empowering Communities has completed a series of training sessions with the residents and staff of Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd.

The materials included scrutiny awareness, team building, effective meetings, communicating your message, and the roles and responsibilities for Resident’s Forum members.

We believe residents and staff taking part in training together promotes further collaboration and partnership working as they take the next steps and implement what they have learned.

From what we’ve heard so far, this model is proving quite popular! Their Director of Homes & Communities, Deborah Wooderson, was there to join in on the action, too.

Here’s what some participants said about the training:

It was a very enjoyable, relaxed training session.  Lots of fun and learning together.  Fabulous trainer.
Excellent training giving enough time for discussion and used relevant examples for detail.

Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd is actively seeking to engage with more residents and Empowering Communities will be continuing to assist with that process this summer by holding roadshows and providing additional training sessions.

The workshops are being held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 6th June 2019

  • Tuesday 18th June 2019

  • Friday 21st June 2019

  • Wednesday 26th June 2019

Residents can get involved by contacting Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd staff who will provide more information.
