While our regular blogger, ARCH Policy
Adviser Matthew Warburton is on holiday, ARCH Tenants' Group
Chair Jenny Hill has stepped into the breach to bring you
up-to-date on the work of the Group…
Universal Credit, the 'bedroom tax': these new reforms confuse
most of us. ARCH Tenants' Group has produced two leaflets which we
hope will take you through the minefield.
These leaflets are sent electronically to ARCH member councils who
may wish to provide copies for tenants, or provide them with the link to ARCH's website where they can
be viewed or downloaded.
Your Tenant Participation Officer (TPO), or someone else you
know at the Council, may be able to help if you have not had access
to these leaflets or other information that your landlord has
produced about welfare reforms.
Also, don't forget this year's annual ARCH Tenants' Conference
will take place in Great Yarmouth on 19 September.
This is an ideal opportunity to meet with other tenants and discuss
what your landlord is doing with your rent money now that we have
Have you entered the annual ARCH Awards? The 2
September deadline for nominations is fast approaching,
and the awards celebrate and recognise inspirational tenants and
initiatives from councils.
If you would like details of the conference then you should
contact your TPO. More information is available on ARCH's
website too. Each ARCH member council can have five places for
tenants FREE which is great news. Spaces are limited, so you should
book now to avoid disappointment.
