The SGTO is a tenant’s federation run by tenants for tenants. The organisation is a voluntary organisation that employs 5 paid staff. The service it provides covers; offering support, training, advice and assistance with campaigns and resources to benefit tenants. The organisation also looks at representing vulnerable and under represented areas of the community by operating small projects that will assist those areas.
SGTO can advise on how to set up a tenants association, run a committee, keep accounts and organise meetings with the council. We can help prepare cases for deputation or arbitration to the council. We have information on file such as council minutes, information about tenant activities in other areas of the borough and information on housing issues like repairs, rent increases etc.
