Participate & Tenants’ Rights

Tenant Participation

The association will ensure that tenants are informed and have the opportunity to participate in decisions concerning the management of the association and their tenancies.

The association supports the rights of tenants to form an independent representative organisation, and will as far as possible provide resources and support for tenants wishing to become involved in the decision-making processes of the organisation.

The association will regularly seek the views of consumers of its services with regard to the quality of that service and will have a written publicly available policy about tenant participation.
