If there are no Registered Tenants' & Residents' Organisations (RTOs) in your area, you can set one up. Council tenants, private tenants, owners and occupiers are all welcome to do so. Your local One Stop Shop/Advice and Support Hub or Tenant participation Team can help you.

RTOs are eligible for a £300 yearly grant.

To register with us, your group must complete a registration form, along with a copy of your group's constitution. This constitution should include:

  • The name of the organisation and the area it covers
  • The aims and objectives of the organisation
  • An equal opportunities statement
  • How often the organisation will meet
  • A minimum number of people present for making decisions
  • How the accounts are checked
  • What happens if the association disbands

You can download the RTO application form, or you can pick one up from any One Stop Shop/Advice and Support Hub.
