The Southwark Group of Tenants Organisation is a tenants’ federation, run by tenants and brings together the tenants and residents of Southwark to improve the quality of housing by offering support, training, advice and resources to benefit tenants. Our trained staff work collectively to provide these services to enable tenants to speak with one voice.


About Us 

Southwark Group of Tenants Organisation (SGTO) is an independent voluntary organisation representing and promoting the rights of tenants and residents groups within the London Borough of Southwark. We are a non-political organisation and do not align to any political viewpoint, our aim is to promote the interest of Tenants and Residents Associations in Southwark, by working with all stakeholders to achieve common goals. It originated from the Association of London Housing Estates, which was founded by the London County Council in the late 1950s. In 1984, Southwark tenants decided to set up their own organisation and be responsible for their own affairs.  

The Southwark Group of Tenants Organisation (SGTO) has been in existence for about twenty three years now. Through the years, SGTO has been involved in campaigning for better housing conditions, tenants' rights and tenants' involvement in decision making.

In the past year, SGTO has undergone enormous changes in structure to meet council tenants’ needs. The rejuvenated SGTO is now strategically positioned to promote Southwark Council tenants’ rights, ensure tenants involvement in decision making, safer communities and encourage ethnic and  cultural diversity.
