Tenant participation: ways to get involved

Tenant participation: ways to get involved

If you're a council tenant or leaseholder, you can have your say on how the housing service is run.

Get involved

You can give us feedback online, join a tenant and leaseholder group or forum, take part in events, surveys or consultations and workshops.

Get involved

Local Housing Forums

A local housing forum is a meeting where council housing tenants can discuss local housing services with the council. If you're a tenant, you can join your Local Housing Forum and make suggestions at your local forum about improvements to shared council areas.

Leaseholders Forum

Council leaseholders can get involved and comment on housing services they receive.

The Leaseholders forum meets three times a year. To find out more and join, visit our page on council leaseholders.

Join a service user group

To get involved and have your say about our services you can join a service user group for council tenants.

Contact the Housing Management Board

The Housing Management Board is a forum where tenant and leaseholder representatives meet with senior housing managers and councillors to discuss and influence the development and management of council housing services.

For information on how to contact or join the board see our Housing Management Board page.

Housing Scrutiny Panel

The Housing Scrutiny Panel is a recognised panel of tenants and leaseholders that helps us to improve our performance and standards. Find out more about the Housing Scrutiny Panel.

Get involved in your local community

If you’re a tenant or leaseholder with communal facilities and you have ideas on how to improve them, why not apply to our Environmental Improvement Programme. You can also get involved with decision making in your area.
