SCNI staff help communities to set up associations
Launch of welcome pack
We are always keen to involve residents and their local community associations in discussing and developing their local services and adressing housing issues generally. To achieve this we established the Housing Community Network (HCN) in 1982. The HCN works on four levels:

Community

At the estate or community level, district and SCNI staff are available to assist communities in setting up bona fide associations to represent the views of their local community to the Housing Executive and other agencies.

District

District managers will look for representatives from each of the local resident/community associations across the neighbourhood to come together at a neighbourhood forum. The forum will discuss service group standards, service delivery and related housing issues.

Area

There is also a forum set up in each of the Housing Executive's 5 areas, to which each District HCN sends representatives. The Area Housing Community Networks monitor and review services throughout their area.

Centre

The Central Housing Community Network is the Housing Executive's central panel advising on our policies and procedures. The Central HCN comprises of 15 tenant and community representatives nominated from the area networks.
