The Future of Eastlight Festival: register here!

We live in exciting times at Eastlight Community Homes. We are drawing up plans which set out what our priorities will be in the years to come – and we want you to decide them with us.

The Future of Eastlight Festival has been designed to give you the chance to shape the future of your organisation. As a Community Gateway organisation, we want to work with you to shape our priorities to ensure we provide the improvements and services you want.

Using your feedback and other research, we have put together early proposals in a number of areas, which we would like to share with you and hear your thoughts on at a series of online events.

Please have a read and sign up by clicking the link.

The events

New homes for those who need them

Monday, 9 November: 9.30am – 11am

Eastlight has begun building thousands of homes over five years. But how many should be let at social rent? Should we focus on building carbon neutral homes? The decisions made will decide how many new homes we build for your friends and family in your communities.

We passionately want people from all backgrounds to play an active role in shaping services and leading change in your communities. We believe the best ideas and solutions come from hearing a range of different viewpoints. Why not come along and share yours?
