Aragon Housing Association believes community development is about building active and sustainable communities based on social justice and mutual respect. The Aragon Community Development Team supports individuals, groups, communities and organisations on the basis of strong values and commitment.
At the same time we believe resident involvement is really important in building vibrant communities. Through our community development work, we aim to build trust and mutual respect with our customers and hope we will encourage more residents to get involved with Aragon.
Community development doesn't stand alone, but integrates with all aspects of Aragon's activities, which results in:
residents having a real, focussed influence over the place they live in
more efficient use of resources
improved customer/stakeholder involvement in the development of Aragon’s housing services
improved customer service
ensuring communities are places where people want to live
Aragon community representation on wider, decision-making bodies
supporting communities to make changes to meet their needs and priorities
recognising local people as an asset – providing experience, knowledge, expertise, enthusiasm and effort
working together with local people and other key stakeholders to ensure our communities are sustainable
tackling issues such as social exclusion, poverty, discrimination, worklessness, crime and fear of crime, equality and diversity.
We will encourage, motivate, support and empower our residents to be involved in all aspects Aragon's work.
