Neighbourhoods Together

Neighbourhoods Together logoRBH has selected 16 of our neighbourhoods as part of the "Neighbourhoods Together" approach.

We aim to build discussion with our tenant and employee members on a neighbourhood level, engaging our membership in local tailored actions to address locally based issues. We are offering our members the opportunity to work with us to develop a rolling action plan for neighbourhoods to deliver local improvements and monitor their impact.

Sixteen clusters of neighbourhoods have been developed with unique profiles and a series of actions looking at

  • Home and environment
  • Sense of community and belonging
  • Health & well being
  • Money and financial well being

From April 2017, we are encouraging our members to influence, discuss and take action in their neighbourhoods. To start this Member conversation, you can help us by making sure that we have your e-mail address and mobile number.

If you haven’t already, please make sure that we have an easy and quick way to make sure you get all the information you need. Either e-mail us on communitypartnership@rbh.org.uk or call us on 01706 273977. For advice on how to access the internet at a digital hub near you, please call 01706 273977.

Decide Together 2017

Decide Together logo Decide Together can offer funding to any RBH member who has an idea for an activity which addresses a priority or action within a Neighbourhoods Together area.

How does it work?

  • Complete and submit a Decide Together Form with your idea
  • You will then be informed if your idea fits the Decide Together Fund
  • Your idea will then be placed on the website
  • All RBH tenant members in the 16 neighbourhoods will be invited to vote online for projects in their neighbourhood
  • Projects that receive a majority vote from members in the neighbourhood will be funded to try out their idea.
  • If you are an RBH member, you need to vote for the projects you want to see happen!
