Neighbourhood

We love hearing about what’s happening in your community and how we can work with you to make your neighbourhood as homely and pleasant as possible.

There are lots of ways you can get in touch with us to share what’s good about living in your neighbourhood, or let us know about anything that you’d like improving. You can come and join us when we’re walking round the area, get in touch via social media, or contact your housing officer or tenant engagement officer.

You can get in touch with our neighbourhood teams by:

What’s happening in our neighbourhoods?

Maltby Environmentalists is an award-winning group of young people who first joined together to clean up their local community through their litter-picking mission. For over three years they’ve been meeting weekly to make their local environment nicer, and they’ve also made amazing friendships with their neighbours. Thanks to funding from our Neighbourhood Grants they’ve even started up new groups including a craft club and an annual Christmas event! If you have an idea you’d like to bring to life in your community you can apply for a grant to by getting in touch with James Smith on 0114 2900 200 or emailing j.smith@syha.co.uk

Check out Freda’s story

When Freda retired she knew she wanted to get involved in something that would brighten up her days. She’s also hugely passionate about the environment, and so together with her husband Bob, The Environmentalists were born.

 

The Neighbourhood Environmental Action Team

Our Neighbourhood Environmental Action Team (NEAT) are a team of caretakers, gardeners and cleaners who keep your neighbourhoods looking lovely.

You’ll probably be familiar with NEAT as they’re often driving around in our branded vans and working hard to keep communal areas tidy, windows clean, and gardens looking smart. They also look after the wider community to improve areas of land. One way they’ve recently done this was through the planting of beautiful pictorial meadows. Lots of you noticed the cheery flowers bursting into bloom last year and we’re excited that they’ll be returning, helping to brighten up our green spaces and contributing towards protecting insects and bees.
