4 How to start a tenants group
Tenant and Resident Associations (TRAs) are made up of people that volunteer their time to make positive changes in their area. This short video includes interviews with several volunteers about the kind of things they do.
Are you passionate about where you live? Then why not join your local TRA to:
● Share ideas and influence decisions about services and improvements to homes or the environment
● Attend and help organise social events and clubs (including Youth Clubs,activity sessions, clean up days and more), which can be a great way to get to know your neighbours and improve the vibrancy of where you live
● Work with the TRA to bid for funding to make improvements to your community
● Gain fantastic work experience and a sense of satisfaction through volunteering
If you would like to get involved with your TRA, please contact your area's Community Development Worker by calling 0161 686 8000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a TRA and not on this list, or you want to provide an address or website, please let us know and we will update your listing.

Several of the TRAs can be viewed on this map. If you are a TRA and would like to be added, please contact us.
We help groups get off the ground and give full support along the way. A starter pack has also been produced which provides a useful guide on how to set up and run a new group. It includes handy tips and information for existing groups too. The starter pack is currently being updated so please contact us for help and guidance.
Six Town Housing has a limited amount of community funding that can be bid for. Please note that it is for TRAs and Action Groups of STH tenants only. Download the guidance notes for the funding here and the application form here.
All TRAs are required to have a constitution. A constitution is a basic set of rules that TRAs must have to be recognised and to apply for funding. It covers the aims of a group and gives guidance on how a group will operate. Help will be given to new groups to develop a constitution. Click here to view our model constitution.
