Who we are

Working with tenants and landlords to make a difference.

The Tenants Information Service (TIS) is the leading organisation, promoting and inspiring innovative tenant participation and scrutiny practice in Scotland. At TIS, we provide independent advice, support, and training for tenants and housing organisations to work together more effectively. As a national membership organisation, our services can make a difference to your quality of life as a tenant, and to the success of your business as a housing organisation.


Our aim is simple, we want to help change social housing in Scotland for the better.

  • We deliver high-quality independent advice, training and support services to tenants, communities and landlords.
  • With detailed knowledge of the housing sector in Scotland our expertise can cut through the bureaucracy, helping you find the right information and take the right decision.
  • Our experience of tenant participation strategies can be invaluable when planning consultation.
  • We are committed to developing good practice in the sector and influencing change for the better throughout Scotland.

We believe that tenants’ and residents’ associations, and community groups should have more influence in making decisions and that increased involvement will bring benefits for tenants and landlords alike.
