About this event

Tenant engagement is an important part of international best practice in social housing policy. It includes activities ranging from the effective distribution of information among tenants, through to the involvement of tenants in housing management, governance, and ownership.

International research has demonstrated the benefits that accrue from tenant engagement policies, both for tenants and social housing providers. In Ireland, tenant engagement is a growing field. Some housing providers have invested in dedicated tenant engagement teams, but the principles and practices of tenant engagement are of relevance to all those working in social housing delivery and management.

The Housing Agency is collaborating with Supporting Communities, Northern Ireland’s Independent Tenant Organisation, to deliver a half-day workshop for Irish housing professionals working in the field of tenant engagement. The workshop will allow participants to explore best practice in tenant engagement, and consider the future direction of the field in Ireland.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 29 September, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Please note that the workshop is a repeat of the workshop delivered in July 2021. It is aimed at those who were unable to attend last years workshop or those new to the field.

The workshop will:

• Provide examples of best practice

• Provide a discussion forum on the future of tenant engagement in Ireland

• Enable housing professionals working in tenant engagement to meet, network with and learn from peers in other organisations.

The workshop will be held online, via Zoom. Participants will receive a link in advance.

How do I sign up?

The workshop is free, but places are limited. Participants should be housing professionals working in roles related to the field of tenant engagement in social housing.

To register, please reserve your place by Friday 23 September 2022.
