Setting up as a Street Voice or Tenants' Association

If there isn't an association in your area and you would like the opportunity to meet neighbours and new friends whilst making a valuable contribution to your community, why not start your own tenants' and residents' association? Start-up grants of £100 are available.  For more information on starting your own association, read our booklet Tenants & Residents' Association - How to get one started.
