GREENWICH HOUSING SOCIETY

http://greenwichhousingsociety.org.uk/

This small registered Housing Society has been helping those of 60 years of age and above for well over 50 years.  We have two properties in the Blackheath Standard area and initially, the Society was entirely run by volunteers.  The actual Management Committee is still made up of volunteers but in recent years, because we are Registered and answerable to some degree to the Homes and Communities Agency, we have found it necessary to have someone to help with our book-keeping  and another person to act as our Housing Officer.  Both these individuals act in a freelance capacity and submit their invoices to the Society.

This has worked well but we would like to have one or two more local people to serve on the Management Committee.  Having knowledge of the area and what is going on in the locality is a useful asset.  There are always small undertakings to be dealt with eg delivering items such as the Tenants Newsletter, perhaps visiting a tenant from time to time, but nothing too onerous.

Anyone interested should first contact the Chair, Dorothy Martin at dot.martin@phonecoop.coop
