Development Support Projects
TIS has four Development Support Projects in the local authority areas of East Ayrshire, East Lothian, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire. These projects are a partnership between the Council, local tenants’ federation or movement and TIS.
Based in the local authority area, skilled TIS staff work with the Council and its tenants. They develop effective tenant participation, supporting tenants and communities to influence housing management, conditions and policy. These partnerships strive to ensure that tenants are at the heart of consultation and participation approaches and have a meaningful role in scrutinising and shaping landlord services.
Development staff in the project assist tenants to address organisational efficiency and strategic objectives. Outreach staff develop local communities through support and training. Administration staff support the day to day organisation of the project.
