Julie Rice-Harvey is a Sheltered Representative for Trivallis, and a level two involved tenant who sits on the Complaints Working Group. Julie has influenced many different things at Trivallis and was instrumental in the re-opening of Maerdy Paddling Pool, a few years ago.
As part of the Complaints Working Group, Julie works with others to look through existing complaints, checking for common themes and looking for ways that Trivallis can improve their services for tenants, from her perspective.
Currently in her position as a Sheltered Representative, Julie is responsible for organising social events, fundraising, and linking in with local schools and community groups.
Julie said: “I enjoy being involved because it gives me a purpose and something to do to brighten up the day and I like to make a difference to people’s lives.”
Julie makes a big difference in her community. Julie is part of an intergenerational project alongside other residents from Ferndale Court and Darren Park Primary School.
As part of the project, residents are invited to activities at the school such as concerts, services, and other events and in return, the children are invited to the complex for craft sessions, gardening, and other activities.
Currently, Julie is helping to organise an Easter Egg Hunt for the children and residents are purchasing Easter eggs for the children through fundraising events that they have been holding.
