Starting and running a T&R group

Setting up a tenants’ and residents’ association couldn’t be easier; all you need is a few people in your area who share a passion about wanting to make improvements.  You could maybe attend other public meetings in the area to try and drum up more interest to form a steering group.  A start up grant is available from the City of Edinburgh Council for their tenants to cover the costs of hiring a venue, photocopying and anything else needed to help to get started.  If you are with another landlord you could approach them to see what help they could offer to get a group started.  ETF is available for tenants of any landlord to provide guidance, information and support.

At present, ETF has the following member groups:

  • Birnies Court Tenants and Residents Association;
  • Gateside Tenants and Residents Association;
  • Hailesland Park Neighbourhood Council;
  • Laichfield Community Association;
  • Magdalene Neighbourhood Association;
  • Maidencraig Court Residents Association;
  • Minorities Initiatives Tenants and Residents Association;
  • Moredun Multis & Maisonettes Residents Association;
  • North Sighthill Residents Association;
  • Ratho Station Residents Association;
  • Redbraes Residents Association;
  • West Cromwell, Persevere and Citadel Residents Association;
  • Wharton Square Residents Association;
  • Willowbrae and Duddingston Residents Association.

If you would like to set up a group in your area or would like some more information please contact the Federation Office.
