The latest meeting of the ARCH Tenants Group took place on 6
November with a packed agenda and lots of discussion with ARCH
Chief Executive John Bibby on the latest government policy
announcements and progress on developing a National Tenants Voice
with guest speaker Nic Bliss from the National Tenants
Nic Bliss updated the Tenants Group on NTO discussions with the
Housing Minister following the Grenfell Tower fire and their
involvement in setting up the ongoing series of Resident Engagement
Meetings being organised across the country with the Minister to
which a number of members of the ARCH Tenants Group had been
invited. The ARCH Tenant Group has been invited to send a
representative to sit on a steering group with representatives from
the NTO to examine the possibility of re-establishing a National
Tenant Voice or equivalent.
The Tenants Group also considered feedback received from
delegates attending the recent ARCH Tenants Conference held in
Birmingham which was very well received by those attending the
event with some excellent feedback on the programme content and
overall organisation. Photographs from the Tenant Conference
are now available. Where you there? Can you spot
yourself in the photo?
Look out for the minutes of the meeting which will be posted to
the website once ready.

The Group also received an update on the Benefit to Society
Campaign and also paid tribute and said a fond farewell to
Carole Halfacre who has been the Tenant Group Facilitator for
the last 6 years and was attending her last Tenant Group meeting
before moving on to pastures new next month. We all wish her
well for the future.
