Looking after our neighbourhoods – and the people who live there.
In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and local businesses at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. Across the borough, our Estates Services teams collaborate with residents of council-owned housing estates to look after shared amenities and outdoor spaces. We also work to combat anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, litter and graffiti. Our aim is for everyone to have a clean, safe, healthy place to live
By patrolling our estates in the evening as part of a three-person team, you’ll provide vital reassurance to the community. Engaging with residents and visitors, you’ll discourage antisocial behaviour and remind people of their responsibilities to their neighbours. You’ll also report any serious incidents or other issues relating the safety and upkeep of the estate, and provide vital practical support during emergencies. You may occasionally be asked to act as a professional witness in court. This is a great opportunity to do something meaningful for the local area and its residents.
