Community Housing Tenant Network
The tenant Network is supported by The Federation of Housing Associations, and is open to tenant members of Community Housing providers.
There are 38 members of The NSW Federation of Housing Associations, and 71 affiliated members in NSW.
Together, they maintain 32,000 properties, and accommodate 60,000 tenants.
Successful community housing providers pride themselves in their efforts to respond to their tenants' and community needs.
There are individual Tenants Advisory Groups (TAGs) working with -and for – the larger associations. Different communities offer a variety of ways to participate.
Each organisation can send tenant delegates to the Tenant Network.
All member and affiliate TAGs are invited to nominate tenant delegates to the network.
For their efforts to be most effective, tenants need a strong clear voice.
Where there are common goals for community housing tenants, shared voices add value to community housing processes and messages.
The aim of the Tenant Network is to provide a broader voice for tenant interests in community housing. The network is an opportunity to share experiences – what works, what can be improved in individual tenant associations.
