Indepentent Residents’ Adviser Services
We work in partnership with single and mixed tenure communities, providing independent, impartial advice on the estate regeneration process.
Estate regeneration: good practice guide
Our role is to explain the options estate regeneration offers to communities and instill the confidence for them to examine the options and make decisions for the benefits of the whole community. We provide the support, skills, and confidence so that residents get the best out of what is a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity.
We have extensive experience of supporting and advising communities through what can be a worrying time, ensuring they have the support and expertise behind them throughout the process.
