Community Involvement

Join our Tenants Panel

DPHA now has two new Tenant Panels. These are informal groups where we can get views from customers on how we are doing and new ideas we are working on.

Meetings are held at the following venues:

For sheltered housing tenants:
Nairn Street; sheltered housing common room

For any interested tenants:
DPHA office

If you are interested in joining the Panels, please contact Kimberley Tennant on 0141 435 6532 or email kimberley.tennant@dpha.org.uk.

The Association is founded on the principle of tenant and resident involvement in all its forms: participation, consultation and control. Ultimately we ensure control of the organisation by the community in the form of the annually elected  Management Committee, comprising a selection of tenants, residents and co-opted members. The Management Committee, or Governing Body, therefore represent the community in every major decision taken, including the formulation and review of every strategy and policy. However we also ensure that individual tenants are provided with the opportunity to participate in the decision making and implementation process on a more practical level.

Association Membership

For the small fee of £1.00 you can apply to become a member of Dalmuir Park Housing Association. Simply contact our offices and request an application form or click here to download one now.

Return it, duly completed with the £1.00 fee and your application will be considered at the next management committee meeting. If accepted you will be issued with a share certificate.

Your £1 payment is treated as share capital and the certificate is recognition of your rights as a member to take part in all the general meetings of the association.

The issue of the share certificate makes you a lifelong member but does not commit you in any way to personal liability. If you want to find out more about the way the association is run you can request a copy of the Charitable Rules by contacting our offices or download here.

For further information please refer to our Membership Policy.
