AGM 

The Womens Housing Company’s 2015 Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday 26 November. It was a very successful event with around 100 tenants and other guests attending the proceedings and joining us for lunch.

The meeting closed with an address by The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AD CVO, and people at the event we inspired by her enduring message that ‘Women helping women is the most powerful combination in the world’.

Meeting Our Arabic Speaking Tenants

Twenty-two of WHC’s Arabic speaking tenants attending a meeting in late 2015 to identify what helps them to be safe, comfortable and independent in their homes.

WHC plans to hold more meetings in 2016 with tenants whose primary language is not English, to find out about their needs and to receive feedback about our services.


Tenants' Advisory Group Meetings

The WHC Tenants’ Advisory Group (TAG) meets every two months in different locations. The aim of the TAG is for tenants to share information and experiences to help improve WHC’s services. Discussion at the TAG includes repairs, housing services, and how to support all tenants to be involved in activities.

WHC Annual Tenant Satisfaction Survey

The Annual Tenant Satisfaction Survey is an opportunity for tenants to provide feedback to WHC on service delivery, including issues such as repairs and maintenance and housing management. It also asks tenants to let WHC know about the best ways to engage and communicate with them.

All tenants have now been sent the survey form by mail. If you haven’t already completed it, please fill in the form and return it in the postage-paid envelope by 31 January 2016. For any assistance please ring WHC on 9281 1764.
