Become a Shareholder
Anyone over the age of 16, is a Tenant or Leaseholder in either Clapton Park, Nye Bevan and Millfields Estates can register to become a member of Clapton Park Management Organisation and it only costs 20p!
As a member you will be able to attend meetings including the AGM and stand for election as a Board Member.
Being involved in the TMO gives you a voice. You can speak up on the things that really matter to you and your neighbours. If you think there is a problem with parking, there aren’t enough play areas for children or if the grass needs cutting more often, you can raise it and make sure the issue is tackled.
Resident-led housing is successful because local people can take control of their housing service and ensure local needs are met and that the neighbourhood is clean, safe and well run. There are lots of ways you can get involved with your TMO, including joining the Board or a sub-group.
To become a member, just print out a copy of the Membership application form: TMO Membership form and provide a copy to us at The Neighbourhood Office, 4a Gilpin Road or email a completed and signed copy to CPMOEnquiries@hackney.gov.uk.
Join the Board
You can help decide how your housing service is run and what improvements are needed in your local community.
Imagine the satisfaction of being able to say “I helped to do that”. As a Board member – you can!
The TMO is steered by a Board which is made up of local people who help ensure we listen to local needs. The Board decide how we spend our money and help set targets for the organisation.
Any Clapton Park, Nye Bevan and Millfields Estate resident over 16 can become a member of the TMO and stand for election as a Board member. This is a voluntary role – Board members do not get paid for their involvement, they do it simply to make this neighbourhood an even better place to live.
It doesn’t matter what skills, qualifications or experiences you have. We provide free training to all our Board members.
Board members meet every month to discuss reports, look at new ideas, manage the budget, and decide on projects to improve our estates. The Board are here to ensure we improve our homes and local environment, get the wider community involved and build on the community spirit in Clapton Park.
We hold an AGM every year when new Board members are voted in. The AGM is a great opportunity to meet current board members and staff and find out more about how we work, our achievements and our targets.
Become a Block Champion
Our biggest priority is to make sure that your views are heard and answered so we need residents to be our ‘eyes and ears’ on the estate by becoming a Block Champion and getting involved in our Focus Groups.
It’s a great way to work with us to help improve your block or street, and to get to know your neighbours.
As a Block Champion you represent other residents and act as spokespeople for your neighbours in your block or street, as and when issues arise.
When something is not working properly in your block you are the first port of call to notify the Housing Team. You also decide the priorities when it comes to cleaning around your block.
We can provide full training if you are interested in becoming a Block Champion.
You can get more information about being a Block Champion in our Guide book:
