Are you interested in joining London Tenants Federation?
Are you a:
- London-wide, borough-wide, neighbourhood-wide or landlord-wide tenant and resident or leaseholder organisation?
- Individual TRA, TMO or Co-operative or tenant action group?
- Individual tenant or resident?
Click on the relevant category to find out more about the membership option for which you are eligible. All you have to do to join is email us (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will make sure you are on our mailing list and kept up to date about our meetings and events. If you have any questions, or are unsure where you might fit, ask us via email. We look forward to welcoming you.
Please note: LTF is an organisation that supports council tenants and leaseholders, and social and affordable rent tenants and residents. While others (e.g., private renters, academics, journalists) are unable to join as members, all are welcome to sign up for our newsletter. We send out our newsletters very periodically — usually about quarterly. We occasionally send out meeting announcements or share news of our evidence submissions and policy responses via Mailchimp as well.
You are eligible for voting membership if you are a:
- Borough-wide tenant, resident and leaseholder organisations (e.g., Southwark Group of Tenant Organisations; Sutton Federation of Tenant and Resident Associations)
- Neighbourhood-wide tenant groups
- (Sub-) Regional tenant groups (e.g., a housing association scrutiny panel operating in part or all of London)
- London-wide tenant groups (e.g., London Federation of Housing Co-operatives, BME Landlord Tenant Forum)
- Landlord-wide tenant organisations (e.g., Shian Housing Association tenants)
- Some national groups with large London presence or London-centred membership (e.g., NFTMO)
Voting member group representatives are invited to join and vote in our general meetings and AGM. They are also welcome to join our single issue meetings and our conferences. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter and select that you are a social housing tenant or leaseholder.
Non-voting membership is an option for any individual TRA, TMO or Co-op, and many tenant action groups or more informal tenant organising groups — particularly if there is no existing independent (not landlord-run), tenant/resident-led association on your estate.
Non voting member group representatives are invited to join our AGMs, our single issue meetings and our conferences, however they are not able to vote in our general meetings at this time. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter and select that you are a social housing tenant or leaseholder.
Individual tenants and residents:
We are aware that, in many cases, there is no support (or insufficient support) from landlords for independent tenant organising. This is most commonly — though not exclusively — the case for tenants and residents with housing association landlords, although this is increasingly impacting those with local authority landlords as well. As such, we recognise that the requirement to be part of a tenants group can be prohibitive to those who lack the support to maintain such groups, but who would otherwise like to engage with us. We now invite any individual tenant with an interest in organising their neighbours (especially where organising does not exist) to join our single issue meetings and conferences. We also invite you to reach out to us — email@example.com — to see how we might be able to support you in your efforts to organise your community. Make sure to sign up to our newsletter and select that you are a social housing tenant or leaseholder.
Sign up for the LTF Newsletter:
You can sign up to our newsletter by using the form below. There is a drop down menu that helps us categorise our contacts. We will reach out if we need any clarification. The options are:
- I am a social housing tenant or leaseholder: this includes council tenants and leaseholders, and affordable rent (all tenures) housing association tenants.
- I am a private tenant: this includes anyone renting from a private landlord, or renting at market levels from a housing association landlord (if you are reaching out on behalf of a cross-tenure group that includes social and affordable rent tenants, please choose social housing tenant or leaseholder, but recognise that some events will be held specifically for tenants who are not renting at market levels).
- I am a journalist or researcher: this includes academics, students and anyone in media.
- I am a social housing worker: this includes housing association and TMO or Co-op workers and council TP officers.
- Other: this includes politicians, CVS groups and other professionals who do not fit into the above category.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
