A Tenant and Resident Group (sometimes called an association, or
TRA) is a group of local people who get together to discuss issues
that may be affecting the area they live in. These are open to all
the residents in a specified area including people who've bought
their own properties.
Tenant and Resident Groups set their own agendas. Some groups
may want to focus on housing issues, such as repairs or empty
properties, whilst others may have an interest in local community
issues such as the environment or crime. Alternatively, some may
wish to participate in wider housing policy matters.
Some groups are formal and have agreed a set of rules (known as
a constitution) and this means they can receive funding
from Trafford Housing Trust to help them run.
You may not want a formal group and want to operate on your own.
Whatever you choose, you will still receive advice and support from
the Community Partnership Team.
