Hannah McCusker, Tenancy Management Team Leader at CGA and one of the event organisers said: “As the first Gateway organisation set up in the UK, we put our tenants firmly at the heart, so we are always keen to hear from local people about how we can better support them and how they can help shape our services, so please do come and speak with our community engagement team on Saturday to find out more.


“We also work closely with the Police, community leaders and local groups throughout the year to address anti-social behaviour and make our communities safer places to live.

“This event will enable us to understand what concerns people have, so we can work together to resolve them.”
