Strategic Resident Participation


Resident training programme

Our Resident Participation Team offers a wide range of courses to help those living in our homes to develop and run a Tenants’ and Residents’ Association as well as other community projects.

The courses are free for residents living in Hackney Council homes. They run throughout the year depending on the number of residents who sign up for them. Each course runs for 2 to 3 hours either during the day or in the evening, and we offer online or in person sessions.

For more details including how to sign up, see Resident training programme (PDF 542kb).
