We aim to help tenants and other customers get involved and
participate in the decision making process and service delivery
requirements of ACHA.
We have a wide variety of opportunities for
formal and informal participation which can be found in our Get
Our Tenant Participation Strategy ( 2016-19), which was produced following consultation with service users, outlines our commitment to tenant participation and involvement. You can download it in the Related Publications box on the right.
Alastair MacGregor, Chief Executive
“We welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with tenants and recognise the importance of good quality participation. By working together we can build a strong and successful organisation that meets and hopefully exceeds the needs of tenants. Involving tenants is at the core of ACHA’s principles and we will always strive to give communities as many opportunities as possible to work with us. We are keen to wherever possible incorporate the outcomes of tenant engagement in our priorities going forward so please input if you feel strongly about something.”
Whilst there are a range of ways for you to get involved there are four main strands of more formal Tenant Participation:-
- The Tenants Consultation Register - Which comprises of tenants who have indicated that they would like to take part in surveys or consultation about our services and policies.
- Registered Tenant Organisations (RTO’s)- ACHA
supports a number of groups who have formally set themselves up as an
RTO or as more commonly known, a Tenant & Resident Association. ACHA
can provide funding to groups and will help organisers set up new
groups in local areas. We currently have two RTOs – one in Cardross
and one in Campbeltown. If you would like information on how to set up
your own group or contact existing groups please contact your local
ACHA office or our communications team.
- The Argyll Tenant panel - Comprises of representatives from our RTO’s and members of the Tenant Consultation Register. The Panel meet every second month in Mid Argyll and discuss issues which affect their local areas.
- Your Voice (Tenant Scrutiny Group)- Our newest participation forum which tests our policies and procedures to make sure they are fit for purpose. The Your Voice group make formal recommendations to our Board of Management.
