This is a group of tenants and residents who live in the multi who are elected by other residents in the building to be their voice. The committee organises events as requested by the members, usually held in the common room e.g., bingo, Coffee Mornings, and raffles to raise funds for the group.
The committee meet on a regular basis to plan activities. Notes of these meetings can be put on the notice board/Facebook page where every building will have their own way to communicate.
They also arrange meetings with various council officers to discuss any issues in the multi-storey. All tenants/residents should be invited to attend these meetings.
A constituted Tenant/Resident Group can fund raise and apply for external funding to purchase items as agreed by the residents e.g., new Christmas decorations and tablecloths.
The committee can request a cupboard in the common room to store things such as bingo books raffle prizes and Christmas decorations, and this cupboard can also be locked.
Your Housing and Support Officer is there to assist the group by attending meetings if required and by dealing with any issues regarding the management of the common room.
