  • dealing with neighbour complaints, breach of tenancy conditions and reporting repairs to communal areas
  • working with contractors on behalf of tenants about access to individual properties or communal areas for repairs, maintenance or improvements
  • arranging social activities for residents and non-residents
  • organising other facilities such as visiting care services and hairdressers for residents
  • working with social services and health workers for specific needs
