The Wolverhampton Federation of Tenants’ Associations has been in existence for over 30 years. We have now acquired company status as a community interest company (CIC).
Who are we?
We are an organisation promoting the interests of social sector tenants within Wolverhampton.
We wish to ensure tenants and prospective tenants are able to have a say over services and are able to influence them so they are relevant to their needs.
So what do we do?
- We promote the interests of tenants on all issues affecting their homes and estates
- We offer advice, support, and practical help for tenants and tenants’ groups
- We work to ensure tenants have a say in how their homes and estates are run
- We look to improve facilities for tenants
- We seek to represent tenants views on all issues
- We provide information and training for tenants.
We have obtained grant funding from the BIG Lottery, Reaching Communities Programme for a project ‘Tenant for Tenants – a voice for all’ through which we were able to establish this web site.
We intend to work closely with the City Council, other landlords and service providers to further the interests of tenants. We presently have a board of 11 directors, and employ 2 members of staff.
Our membership is open to:
- All Tenants and Residents Associations (TRAs)
- Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs)
- Informal tenants groups that can demonstrate local support
- Individual tenants and leaseholders
- Associate members (individuals or organisations) who support the aims and objectives of the Federation.
Informal groups, associate members and individuals have no voting rights.
Our general meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month, except in August and December, at Coven Lodge, Spring Valley (off the Cannock Road). However this year we are holding a meeting in December on Council rents and service charges.
Associations, groups, organisations and TMOs may each nominate 2 delegates to attend meetings. Transport costs may be reimbursed under our transport policy.
