Tenant Chairs of Northern Ireland Come Together


This spring, Empowering Communities tried something new. We delivered training to tenants from several different housing associations - together. 

This new, bespoke chairperson session was created following a suggestion from our peer networking group, the Tenant Participation Practitioners Network (TPPN).

Alpha Housing (NI) Ltd, Newington Housing Association, Radius Housing Association and South Ulster Housing Association all availed of the opportunity and invested in their tenants by sending them along to take part.


Empowering Communities Tenant Participation & Community Engagement Officer, Siobhán ONeill said, “The session provided an opportunity for discussion between the tenants throughout, which was invaluable. Tenants learned from each other and shared good practice which complimented the training perfectly.”

The participants agreed:

Excellent, informative and good sharing with other participants.
Very informative and conducted very professionally.  A great day all around.

Thank you to Radius Housing Association for hosting the event at its Holywood Regional Office!
