Tenants' view

Make yourself heard

We’re on the hunt to find 50 determined and passionate tenant voices from our membership - like you!

Speaking out can help change the way people understand tenant involvement. Your words have the power to inspire not only involved tenants like you, but also challenge what housing staff and businesses like contractors, and even our wider society, think about social housing tenants opinions. 

We need tenants with opinions, opinions, opinions.

Whether you write about an event you attended, an achievement you want to shout about or you want to let off some steam about something that really frustrates you - we want to hear from you with your view.

All we will ask is that your thoughts are constructive and that what you have to say is relevant to the tenant involvement agenda. And that's it.

It’s our aim to help these 50 people find a strong voice by helping them in a range of ways depending on what they’ll need. This could be by being invited to meetings and events, coaching on writing and blogging, formal training or by regularly sending the latest policy information.

Be part of something different, make your opinion count and make yourself heard. Social housing in England today needs people like you to speak out.
