Winter 2010

• Government publishes IRIS report on regional and national tenants’ organisations

In October 2010 the Department for Communities & Local Government published a report on the research into tenants’ organisations carried out by IRIS Consulting.

The IRIS research identified those tenants’ organisations that have developed over many years that operate at the national and regional levels in England.

This is the first research ever carried out and published that maps the existence of regional and national tenants’ organisations across the country. It identifies the distinctive roles performed by the four national bodies (TAROE, NFTMO, TPAS and CCH) and the areas where there are stable and viable regional tenants’ organisations (London, East Midlands and North-East).
