We are happy to support our Tenants and one great way to do this is by joining or forming a Tenants Group/ TARA.
A TARA brings local people together to form a collective voice. They work together to represent the views of tenants and residents in their area and help make their neighbourhood a better place to live. In particular, their aim is to improve housing and environmental standards in their neighbourhood and improve the sense of community.
We are wanting to make sure we give tenants are given an opportunity to make decisions in their communities. We know often that people have opinions and ideas about their area that others might share.
Are you passionate about where you live? Then why not join your local TARA to:
- Share ideas and influence decisions about services and improvements to homes or the environment
- Attend and help organise social events and clubs (including Youth Clubs, activity sessions, clean up days and more), which can be a great way to get to know your neighbours and improve vibrancy of where you live
- Work with the TARA to bid for funding to make improvements to your community
- Gain fantastic work experience and a sense of satisfaction through volunteering
At the moment we are working closely and regularly with three TARAS. We are wanting to expand this into working within all the five wards of Wythenshawe.
