Shelter has produced a comprehensive report on ‘Building for our Future- A Vision for Social Housing’ in January 2019.
Amongst a number of recommendations to improve social housing, the report calls for a stronger voice for tenants including support for independent tenants organisations like Rotherham Federation. A key recommendation of the report is that “residents of social housing must have a voice with national, regional, and local government. Government should support the establishment of an independent tenants’ voice organisation or tenants’ union, to represent the views of tenants in social housing within national and local government. It should involve as wide a range of tenants as possible.“
Rotherham Federation of Community fully endorses this report and supports the recommendations made within it.
