Setting up a community group
Updated: 09 Mar 2014
This section aims to provide advice and assistance to both community and tenant groups as well as to those who are interested in establishing such a group.
One of the tools available to groups is the Community association handbook ( 1032 KB). It is as a reference and training document by over 600 community associations. The handbook, produced with support from the Housing Community Network, provides information on our policies, procedures and other housing and community related topics.
