Community ,

Our little van is gearing up to head out on our biggest roadshow yet!

We're putting on our comfy shoes and hitting the streets to meet as many customers as possible over the summer.

Building on the success of last year's pop-up events, which saw our team tour 40 Karbon communities to hear directly from customers, we'll be covering more miles and hope to meet even more of you.

Pop-up events are a great chance to: 

  • Put a face to a name, meet your local housing officer and members of our team.
  • Tell us about our specific issues you need help with
  • Let us know what we're doing right and what we can improve
  • Discover new services and opportunities in your area
  • Find out how customers have helped shaped new Karbon services and procedures

Keep an eye on the Karbon Facebook page for more information on where we will be and at what time. Extra dates and locations may also be added to the roadshow.

  • Walker - 17th April
  • Scotswood - 24th April

You Said, We Did

In last year's roadshow we asked customers what was most important to them and 'listening to resident's views and acting upon feedback' was the third highest response. Customers requested ,more meet and greets like this in the area' , so this year's roadshow is doing just that.

We're looking forward to meeting even more residents this year and collecting even more valuable feedback.
