Tenant empowerment

Tenant empowerment allows tenants to have their voice heard to improve the services they receive. This includes a framework of tenant groups which is supported to scrutinise housing services delivery.

Tenants' forum

The Tenants' Forum consists of tenant members and Supported Housing Development Group representatives. They meet monthly and promote estate management improvements and day to day experience in the estates. Achievements are published in the Tenants Talk magazine.

New members are always welcome, please contact the Chair if you wish to attend a meeting or join.
