Keep you and your neighbours safe. When you sign-up to become a building safety volunteer you will receive training and further development opportunities as part of your role.

  • Fantastic experience to add to your CV.
  • Commitment of an hour a week – flexible to suit you until you complete the course.
  • Receive regular updates from building fire safety block inspectors.

Building safety group member: Strategic steering group

  • Meet up to three times a year to discuss building safety across the Council’s housing stock.
  • Network with other representatives from across the borough, to influence the building safety approach, future policies and challenge performance.
  • Access learning and development opportunities such as accredited training.
  • Great experience to add to your CV.
