North Lanarkshire Tenants’ and Residents’ Participation Project was established in 2004 to develop Tenant Participation activity across North Lanarkshire. It is funded by North Lanarkshire Council and is a partnership between North Lanarkshire Federation of Tenants & Residents and North Lanarkshire Council.
The Project is keen to ensure that tenants are at the heart of the decisions that are made and taken about where they live. The Project continually strives to ensure that all tenants can get involved in tenant participation activities and is always exploring new ways to promote and develop new forms of participation and involvement.
Four members of staff provide development, outreach and administration support to tenants and residents throughout the local authority.
The project provides independent development support to local tenants and residents groups, and provides training, information and advice to local tenants who are keen to set up new tenant groups.
In 2013 the Federation won the Frances Nelson Award for their work in the Motherwell area of North Lanarkshire.
The work of the Project is monitored through a Project Monitoring Group; made up of representatives of North Lanarkshire Federation, tenants and officers from North Lanarkshire Council.
