Tenant and Resident Associations (TRAs)

A Tenants and Residents Association (TRA) is formed by a group of residents living on an estate or area who come together to make their local area a better place to live.

TRAs gives residents more say in how their estate is run and allows them to work with Islington Housing Services to find solutions to problems affecting their area.

The Benefits of Setting up a TRA

Forming a TRA can bring many advantages for you and your neighbours, including the following:

  • providing residents with an effective way to make their views known to Islington housing services and other organisations
  • developing a good community spirit, helping neighbours to get to know each other
  • providing residents with the opportunity to suggest how the council spends money in their local area
  • enabling residents to attend an estate walkabout to inspect your estate and make suggestions for improvement
