The Department of Social Development has published a Tenant Participation Strategy for Northern Ireland 2015 â?? 2020. Â The strategy explores how social landlords and tenants can work together to improve services. It sets out what social landlords should do in order to give tenants the opportunity and choice to participate in the decisions that affect them and also outlines how the government can help. Â It also aims to challenge all social housing landlords to be consistent and to increase the extent and effectiveness of their tenant participation services in Northern Ireland.Â
Through the strategy tenants will be encouraged and supported to become involved in one or more of the range of participation options available to them and will be provided with the opportunity to develop their skills further so that they may progress to a higher level of participation.
