Tenant Advisory Panel | National Housing Federation
The National Housing Federation are looking for five residents of social housing who are passionate about improving how housing associations work with residents to provide great homes, to join our Tenant Advisory Panel (TAP). TAP members will have the opportunity to learn new skills, work with tenants and housing professionals on important projects and attend conferences.
We want to make the process as easy as possible, if any of your residents are interested in applying, they should email us and tells us:
- About themselves - who they are, where they live (including which Housing Association) and a short summary of their experience as a housing association resident.
- Why they would like to be part of the Panel.
- What skills and experience they think they would bring to the Panel?
- Any other information they feel we should be aware of that would help their application.
Please make sure applicants provide their full name, where they live, the name of their Housing Association, and a contact telephone number. The application should be 500 - 750 words and should be sent to TogetherwithTenants@housing.org.uk by Friday, 19 January 2024.
