Tenant Participation Strategies

All social landlords in Scotland are required to have a Tenant Participation Strategy and to review these regularly involving tenants. TIS can work with staff and tenants to agree a programme for evaluating, reviewing your strategy, determining a new action plan and consulting with tenants.

TIS is the leading organisation in Scotland developing Tenant Participation. We do this by promoting and supporting good practice, including:

  • Building on and developing existing approaches to Tenant Participation, both formal and informal
  • Generating a menu of approaches to Tenant Participation, which reach out to communities
  • Developing a range of participation methods to increase opportunities in dispersed communities
  • Supporting landlords to maximise the returns from Tenant Participation by working together
  • Tackling geographical isolation and engaging with small communities
  • Linking Tenant Participation strategies to other strategic policy developments, such as community planning
  • Ensuring that effective resources are available
  • Developing meaningful Tenant Participation Action Plans and support to monitor action plans
  • Developing training plans
