Tenant Council

The Tenant Council acts as a link between the local area housing forums and the council and advises both on borough wide matters that affect tenants. The Tenant Council is made up of Southwark Council tenants and its membership is appointed annually.

Tenant Council is made up of:

  • two delegates and two deputy representatives from each local area housing forum
  • one delegate and one deputy representatives from SGTO
  • councillors with an interest in housing - can speak and give their views but cannot vote

Members of public can attend as observers. Observers can speak but have no voting rights.

Tenant Council meetings

Tenant Council meetings are normally every six to eight weeks. Meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend the meeting as observers.

Listed below are the dates of future meetings. Meetings are held at 160 Tooley Street SE1 2QH. Please note that dates and venue may change and we advise that you check this page before attending a meeting.

Tenant Fund Management Committee (TFMC)

This is a subcommittee of the Tenant Council and they're responsible for the management of the Tenant Fund.

We set aside a small percentage from every tenant’s monthly rent to support the groups that represent tenants. This fund is managed through the Tenant Council who make recommendations on how the money should be spent.

The funds are allocated to local TRAs and partly to Southwark Group of Tenant Organisations (SGTO), an independent and campaigning body representing the interests of local tenants. Funds are also used to provide training for tenants and resource centres.
