TORC Top Tip for Tenants

Residents’ Group- essential and practical information


Please see the latest Top Tip, this month it is all about Residents’ Groups! Learn about the functioning, aims, purposes, and objectives of the groups.

TORC strives to ensure that the sense of community is central to our work. We value social inclusion, community spirit, and focus on residents’ needs and views.  The residents’ groups are an essential part of the community acting as a voice for the scheme, representing local interest, sharing ideas, organising social events.

It may seem like a huge responsibility, adding to a busy schedule, but give a meeting a try and see for yourself. Meet your neighbours, get inspired, feel the community spirit, and become a part of planning and seeing things happen for your scheme!
