Tuath’s National Tenant Forum is held once a year and its purpose is to enhance communication between Tuath Housing management, staff and residents. The forum invites residents to meet to discuss housing initiatives and neighbourhood specific issues as well as give feedback on existing services or ideas for improvements. This ensures the relevance of services and activities offered to Tuath Housing residents and wider communities and helps us to further improve our services. The forum is also an opportunity for tenants to network, share ideas and experiences from their own communities.
The National Tenant Forum was originally held as an in-person meeting but was moved online in 2020 due to Covid-19. It will continue to be held online in 2021.

Last November we held our online National Tenant Forum. We had guest speaker Sergeant Patrick Conway from the Garda National Crime Prevention Unit who gave very useful information to the forum members including contact details and other information on crime prevention in communities. Further information is available at https://www.garda.ie/en/crime-prevention/.
Forum members also discussed the impacts of Covid-19 on residents’ groups and communities and gave feedback on a new information video for tenants. If you would like to become a member of the National Tenant Forum please get in touch!
In October, Tuath Housing reached another milestone by holding the first National Tenant Forum in the Republic of Ireland. Resident’s groups from around the country came together to network, share experiences. Residents’ groups play a major part in developing our tenant engagement strategy. We listen to all the feedback we receive from the tenant forum and implement changes to our services. Presentations on the day were from Thornwood Resident’s Group, Castleguard Manor Resident’s Association, Dublin City Council and Connswater Homes, Belfast.
