At Aragon Housing Association you can have a say on the services, policies and decisions which affect our residents, by getting involved in one of our Themed Customer Panels.
The Panels meet throughout the year in our retirement schemes across Central Bedfordshire at different times during the week.
We will pay for your petrol if you drive to the meeting, or will arrange a taxi if you don’t have your own transport. We may also pay for registered childcare or carers if that would help you attend meetings.
They are groups of residents who meet to discuss specific topics relating to the services Aragon provides. Occasionally guest speakers from other organisations such as the police, local councils and health providers are invited to discuss their policies and projects which affect Aragon residents.
Our panels include:
This meets seven times a year on a Monday evening between 5.30pm and 7.00pm in Clophill. Some of the topics discussed include:

This meets on a Thursday morning between 10.00am and 12 noon in Ampthill. Some of the topics discussed include:
building of new properties
energy efficiency and environmental issues.
This meets on a Tuesday morning between 10.00am and 12 noon in Henlow. Some of the topics disscussed include:

This meets on a Wednesday morning between 10.00am and 12 noon in different retirement schemes across the district. The Panel is attended by residents who live in retirement housing or receive services from the retirment team and look at issues relating to retirement housing. Support systems for residents, setting service standards and potential new services in the future are some of the topics discussed by this panel.
