Tenants & Residents Associations
You can get involved in a number of ways. One way is through supporting your local Tenants & Residents Association (TRA). Sandwell MBC can provide funding for setting up a TRA and other grants to keep your group running effectively.
Take a look at Lets Get Organised - A Handbook for Tenants and Residents. This handbook has more information on how to start and run a successful Tenants and Residents Association.

Tipton Tenant Management Organisations (TMO's)
A TMO is a means by which council or housing association tenants and leaseholders can collectively take on responsibility for managing the homes they live in. TMO's are an independent legal body and usually elect a tenant led management committee to run the organisation. TMO's can take different forms and sizes and the services managed by the TMO vary with local circumstances, but may include day-to-day repairs, allocations and lettings, tenancy management, cleaning and caretaking, and rent collection
