Events Calendar

We believe providing opportunities to connect and engage with each other is key when creating liveable communities.

Integral to this aim is a robust, ongoing process of tenant engagement which seeks input from our tenants on the management of their housing and which looks to empower tenants to improve their lives in other ways.

We wish to encourage each and every one of our tenants, residents and owners to get involved and do their part to establish and maintain vibrant, healthy neighbourhoods where people feel safe and connected.

To deliver this important work we have a dedicated Tenant Engagement Team, who have developed a Tenant Engagement Strategy. Click here to view our Tenant Engagement Strategy.

Please find a list of upcoming tenant events and community programs below.
