The Resident Engagement Panel is voluntary. Its role is to advise on the best way forward on how Homes for Lambeth can engage and disseminate information to South Lambeth residents and ensure data is distributed equally to all residents residing on the estate. For example, newsletters. In this instance, the REP would highlight that the newsletter is not reaching all residents and how we could improve this to ensure all residents are receiving the newsletters and provide feedback.
The minutes are now taken by an independent minute taker who has no allegiance with Homes for Lambeth or Lambeth Council.
Resident Engagement Panels are not decision-making bodies within the Homes for Lambeth structure nor are the meetings a forum to review the decisions made to rebuild the estate. However, they have a key role to play in relation to resident engagement.
