Podcast: Tenant participation with Colin Stewart, Louise McNeilage and Helen Barton
Social housing tenants have a statutory right to have a say in the running of their homes, but what does that mean in practice?
TPAS Scotland has been providing support in this very field for over 40 years and has launched a new campaign to help housing organisations and tenants to build better relationships as we recover from the pandemic.
To discuss this campaign and all things tenant participation, Kieran Findlay and Jimmy Black are joined by Colin Stewart - a Castlehill Housing Association tenant and Scottish Housing Regulator board member, Louise McNeilage – a tenant and community engagement facilitator at Scottish Borders Housing Association, and Helen Barton - an associate at TPAS.
