100 years of engaging and empowering residents in Council owned housing:


Tpas and our partners are celebrating 100 years of Engaging and Empowering Residents in Council owned Housing to mark the 100 years since the Addison Act.

Following on from the publication by the Local Government Association (LGA) and Tpas, one of the key findings was the need for more networking opportunities and sharing of good practice in tenant engagement within council-owned housing. You will also find out about the research findings following a recent collaboration between Councils with ALMOs group (CWAG) and Tpas.

There isn’t a better time than now to put engagement even more at the forefront; through positive leadership, mutual respect, trust and accountability. This event will be an opportunity to hear from trailblazers and stakeholders in this field for you to go away with ideas to future proof your approach.
