UK Engage delivers anpackage that puts your residents at the heart of your organisation.
UK Engage works with Arm’s Length Management Organisations (ALMOs), Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs), housing associations and local authorities across the country, to provide independent governance support.
Housing providers across the country choose UK Engage to support different types of housing ballots. We conduct tenant board member elections, tenant consultations, stock transfer ballots and referenda, ensuring residents’ views are properly represented. Our election services offer social housing providers the opportunity to fully engage with residents, allowing them to express their views through democratic processes.
UK Engage helped Homes for Haringey to achieve the best ever turnout in an ALMO Resident Board Member election when over 47% of residents participated. It is our bespoke service that helps to achieve results like this; today we assist some of the largest providers of social housing in the country to empower and enthuse their residents.
