Information for Tenants and Leaseholders
Think you only get presents at Christmas time? Think again! There are lots of grants available throughout the year to help tenants and residents associations pay for things to improve their community (and we can even
help you complete the application form). Local people in St Denys have just got their hands on a whopping £10,000 grant to transform the community room at Bellamy Court. If you’re over 55 years of age why not pop along to one of the regular activities that take place there and see the transformation for yourself?
You'll be able to hear more success stories like this, along with reports on how tenants are helping to influence the housing service, at our
summer conference on July 18. This free, evening event is a great opportunity to meet staff and other tenants and find out more about your housing service. Don't miss out – book your free place today.
Don’t forget, as well as tenants’ conferences we run a packed
calendar of free training courses and informative events and opportunities for tenants and leaseholders to join in.
What would you do with £10,000?
If you don't ask, you don’t get! That's the message from PRADOS – a tenants association in St Denys who recently asked for a lottery grant and received almost £10,000!
You spoke, we're listening
We recently carried out a major survey, asking lots of you what you think of the Housing Services and where we need to make improvements.

From unemployed to unstoppable
