Any tenant or leaseholder of Adactus Housing Association, Beech Housing Association or Chorley Community Housing* can join the Adactus500 to take part in activities such as postal or online questionnaires, online chats, focus group meetings, scrutiny panel meetings and text messaging. When they first join-up, Adactus500 members tell us about the areas of our work that interest them the most. This makes sure that we only contact Adactus500 members about consultations or activities that they are likely to want to do.
There is no pressure to get involved in every consultation or activity we make available. Adactus500 members can take part in as many or few as they like.
In return for completed consultations or activities, Adactus500 members earn points which can be exchanged for a variety of rewards.
It can all be done through the Adactus500 website. If residents do not have access to the internet, residents can contact us to register to take part by post. However, only a limited number of key consultations will be posted out, and so residents are requested to sign up online if they possibly can to make sure they have the chance to complete the most activities. Key consultations are defined as “consultation on a policy that would directly affect the service received by all residents”.
In 2016 we introduced premium membership to alow residents to level up once they have completed 5 photo tasks. Premium members are given the opportunity to submit many more activities.
*unless they are in breach of their tenancy and subject to legal action.
