Tenant Voice

Are you a Rotherham Borough Council tenant who would like to help the council improve their housing services offer?

Rotherfed, and the Council, are committed to empowering Rotherham council tenants to have their voices heard. By joining their Tenant Connectors Network, they can work with you and tailor the opportunities to fit your needs – whether it’s responding to surveys, joining focus groups, or attending more formal meetings. They want you to get involved, however you want to.

Not only can this help improve the services for you, but you will be helping to shape the services for all council tenants of the future too!

Open Arms Community Support Hubs

It’s been a year since Rotherfed started Open Arms drop-in sessions at 10 locations across Rotherham on a fortnightly basis. Since then, they have welcomed over 1,000 people through the door!

As well as people visiting to access help and support from Rotherfed, LASER Credit Union and Citizens Advice Rotherham and District, they offer a space to socialise in too and at their non-library venues they also offer community get togethers. These have a range of free inclusive activities taking place as well as free refreshments. During the school holidays they organise free family events that anyone can book to go along to. In February half term they held a magic show, a circus workshop and an exotic animal’s display. Please get in touch to find out what they have planned for Easter.

For more information about both of these services, email or call 01709 368515.
