This group, called the Hub Group, scrutinizes ARK’s housing and care services and makes recommendations to the Board of Management about what ARK could improve. The Hub Group gives people who receive support or housing the chance to have a say in the decision making and governance within ARK.
This group provides a way to give tenants and people who use care and support services more influence, and the ability to hold their service providers to account. It is also an opportunity to develop partnership working between tenants, people who use care and support services and ARK, to deliver excellent services.
In 2015 ARK recruited the members of this group and after months of interviews and planning, the ARK Hub Group began its work. Details of current Hub Group Members can be found here.
If you want to keep up to date with the Hub Group activities you can find more information on the quarterly ARK Newsletter or on Facebook and Twitter.
If you are an ARK supported person or tenant and would like to raise an issue which you would like the Hub Group to consider, or if you are interested in the work of the Hub Group, and would perhaps like to join the Group in future, please either contact Kirsty McKenzie at firstname.lastname@example.org/ 0131 478 8141, or the Hub group’s Independent Facilitator, Paddy Carstairs, at email@example.com/ Tel 0131 663 4444.
