Residents Associations

What is a residents' association?

A residents' association is a group of people living in an area who have come together on a voluntary basis to take up local issues and to bring the community together.

Why set up a residents' association?

Residents' associations usually come into being because:

  • the area needs more facilities,
  • residents are dissatisfied with the services they receive,
  • people want estate-based social events and outings,
  • residents are worried about a particular issue,
  • people want to improve community spirit,
  • coming together as a group provides one voice, and that voice becomes more powerful,
  • they are a way of receiving information and keeping local residents informed of what is going on locally
  • they can work with other local groups for mutual benefit.

We take tenants' and residents' associations very seriously in Stoke-on-Trent.
