Tenant participation support grant

This grant will support development of an innovative programme to encourage wider tenant involvement in both the social and private rental sectors.

The grant will help tenant groups build skills, confidence and knowledge amongst existing tenants. Tenant support includes advice and training for tenants on how to take part in both the strategic and day to day management of their housing provider. This will enable them to actively participate in improving the service delivery and business efficiency of their landlords.

Following an independent review, it was recommended to move away from the current core funding arrangement to a competitive grant process.

Eligible organisations were invited to bid for a grant to carry out tenant support, participation and involvement activities across Wales over a two year period starting from April 2017. Following assessment of the bids submitted, the grant has been awarded to the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (external link)
