Understanding social housing landlords’ approaches to tenant participation

Tenant participation, which in broad terms may be understood as how tenants “can influence a social landlord’s activity”, has been a long-standing feature of the UK housing system. In the late 1990s/ early 2000s, it was an important policy priority for Government, but in recent years it has slipped down the policy agenda. The Grenfell fire tragedy, which highlighted in the eyes of many commentators the lack of power and influence tenants have, has changed this, with tenant participation now firmly back as a feature of the policy landscape.
