Tenant engagement

We’ve been feeding into the Government’s plans to ensure that residents receive the information they need to remain safe in their homes.

As part of this work, in February the Federation responded to a government consultation. Our response included good practice case studies from several housing associations, and referenced our new initiative Together with Tenants. Our case studies cover:

  • what housing associations did in the immediate response following the Grenfell Tower fire

  • how housing associations are working together with residents to improve building safety

  • the barriers and enablers to keeping homes and buildings safe.

Building safety knowledge hub for social landlords

Dame Judith Hackitt’s recommendations are aimed at changing the culture of building safety and we will work to implement this new system so that our residents are safe. Housing associations across the country can learn from each other by sharing knowledge and best practice.

Take a look at our new building safety knowledge hub for social landlords, which the Federation and the Local Government Association (LGA) have launched for social landlords.
