Tenant Participation Strategy

We are pleased to announce that we have been selected to be part of a Scottish Government backed scheme which will help us to develop a new Tenant Participation Strategy for the Association.

The ‘Next Steps’ programme will help us review, improve and develop our tenant participation and tenant scrutiny arrangements, and develop an action plan for doing so. 

Tenants are at the heart of the Next Steps programme, and we want you to be involved. 

Working with an independent tenant advisory group called TPAS (Tenant Participation Advisory Service) there will be workshop sessions held with tenants to get your feedback on how we can make improvements in Tenant Participation.

Workshop 1- 4th November 2019

This workshop will begin at 10am in the Tannahill Centre and last approx 2 hours and 30 minutes. Lunch will be provided. 

This workshop will be facilitated by TPAS and it will help develop the action plan and raise knowledge, understanding and awareness of:

  •          Landlords legal obligations and tenants’ rights
  •          Highlight good practice that is working elsewhere
  •         Review current participation options and activitie
  •          Identify ideas and actions that could be implemented
  •      The Scottish Social Housing Charter requirements and Regulatory expectations

Workshop 2- 27th November 2019

This workshop is open to everyone who has been involved so far (tenants and our staff) where we will all consider the key findings and develop the draft action plan, this will again be facilitated by TPAS.

This workshop will begin at 10am in the Tannahill Centre and last approx 2 hours and 30 minutes. Lunch will be provided. 

This workshop will cover:

  •          What at our priorities
  •          Key areas to be addressed for the future
  •          Developing a calendar of activities and events
  •          Roles, responsibilities and actions to be taken
