Tenants' Groups

If you and other tenants want to form a tenants group we can help you do this.

What is a Tenants’ Group?

A tenants group is a group of tenants who live in the same area who work together to represent the views of all tenants in the area to help make their neighbourhood a better place to live.

How do I set up a Tenants’ Group?

Tenants’ groups are set up by volunteers. These volunteers live in the community and want to have a say in how it is run and make a difference.

There may be a tenants group already set up in your area. You could ask your housing services officer about this.

If you would like to set a Group up you could start by finding out if any of your neighbours are interested by speaking. ARK can support you to advertise the group and encourage others to get involved.

What next?

You then need to have a meeting to see how many people are interested and decide what the aims of the group will be and how the group will work.

If you decided to be a registered residents association you can get more information about this from your housing services officer or Shelter.org.uk
