Did you know anyone can set up a Residents’ Group?
A Residents’ Group is totally independent from us and is solely run by residents. They can be a great way to get together with people living in your local area or your street or building.
Together you can share information, support each other, run social events, or develop events that bring the community together.
By getting together, our customers and other local residents can have a bigger impact on helping us to recognise what’s important to them and their local community.
We are committed to helping anyone who would like to set up a Residents’ Group and develop it into a Registered Tenant Organisation (RTO).
Becoming a registered RTO helps to create more effective and robust links with us and extends our legal obligation to consult directly with the group.
We can support RTOs with grant applications and funding, the use of facilities and we might be able to offer some staff time to help co-ordinate meetings and take minutes.
