Tenant Participation is about you, our tenants, taking part in decision making processes and influencing decisions about housing policies, housing conditions, and housing (and related) services.
It is a two way process which involves the sharing of information, ideas and control. The aim is to improve the standard of housing conditions and services.
We want to encourage all our tenants to get involved and influence the housing services that we deliver. The Association’s Tenant Participation Strategy, sets out how tenants and service users can take part in a number of ways, both formal and informal.
Here are some examples of how you can take part:
It's up to you how little or how much you take part. Any tenant and their family members aged 16 or over and living with them, can join.
