Tenants' and residents' associations (TRAs)

To have a feeling of pride in your local community, you need to invest in it. Having a strong and organised resident voice is very important.

Set up a new tenants' and residents' association (TRA), or join an existing TRA where you live. TRAs work hard to represent their local area and work on ways to develop their local communities.

By joining, or setting up a TRA you can:

  • invite members of the senior management team to site visits and meetings
  • meet with your local ward councillor
  • access a variety of funding opportunities to improve your local area
  • develop a stronger sense of community and get to know your neighbours better
  • have access to community facilities to hold meetings and events
  • attend training and mentoring events with other TRAs
  • hold local events in your area.

An annual grant is available to registered TRAs to cover annual running costs and the purchase of equipment.

Key facts

  • Frequency of committee meetings and events is down to individual TRAs, but usually they are quarterly.
  • The meetings will take place in your community.
  • TRAs are made up of an elected committee member and the local community.
  • Time commitments vary based on your position on the TRA and the aims and activities that the TRA is involved in
