Neighbourhood inspections & impact projects

By joining Rooftop staff, you can tell us what you think of the area where you live, see what problems there are and consider how we could make improvements.

It also gives you a chance to get to know the people who look after your neighbourhood better.

Our neighbourhood inspections take around one hour and our neighbourhood impact projects take place over a longer period. You will;

  • work together to improve your neighbourhood
  • walk around your neighbourhood giving your views. This could be things like repairs, litter, housing issues, policing and crime
  • help develop an action plan for your neighbourhood
  • develop relationships with others in your neighbourhood.
