About Membership

Membership is what makes Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) special because we are owned by our tenant and employee Members.  This is the fundamental difference that sets us apart from nearly all other housing providers and something we are very proud of.

Membership Strategy

Membership Strategy

Our members have worked with us to develop the strategy.  The aims of the membership are to:

  • Increase the membership of RBH and ensure it reflects the diversity of our tenants and employees.
  • Develop an active membership base by providing members with opportunities to develop/design, decide upon and evaluate service changes as set out in the Engagement Strategy. To ensure the diversity of active members reflects that of the total membership.

  • Build relationships with people who may be interested in becoming a Representative and encourage and support them to stand for election. Work together with Representatives to ensure they are able to effectively fulfil their role and ensure the mutual values of RBH are upheld.

  • Continue to develop a package of member benefits, which are valued by our members and support both individuals and communities.

  • Promote and champion membership of RBH
