Bield RTOs

For many people joining a tenants and residents group provides support and encourages them to have their say. As a member of a group you will work together with your neighbours to influence services in your community and, if you wish, become involved in wider policy reviews which affect all Bield tenants. Many groups also organise community events and benefit from improved community spirit.

If there is an RTO in your area, you will have the opportunity to attend your local Registered Tenant Organisation Forums and meet with Housing staff to discuss and resolve issues in your neighbourhood, and to conduct estate walkabouts with our employees to identify problems and agree solutions for your area.

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 introduced registration of tenant organisations. If your group becomes a Registered Tenant Organisation you have a legal right to be consulted on housing issues. The aim is to give tenants and residents associations, that meet certain criteria, a recognised role in the tenant participation process.
