Our Resident Inspectors help us to inspect key service areas, review how services are delivered in practice and make recommendations for improvement.

Resident Inspectors play a key role in making sure that our services are delivered to a high level.

They also support co-regulation by helping to make sure our service commitment is being met.

What you can get out of it?

Our Resident Inspectors have reported that they enjoy developing new skills and feel they are making a real difference.

By undertaking detailed inspections of particular service areas, you'll gain a thorough understanding of how we operate and the opportunity to directly influence our service delivery.

You will also have the opportunity to learn about subjects that affect our residents, such as equal opportunities, antisocial behaviour and resident involvement.

You will also be expected to attend a one day training course at the start of the programme.

We'll also reimburse any expenses you incur in your role as a Resident Inspector, including childcare and travel expenses.
