Tenants’  Consultative Group

The Tenants’  Consultative Group (TCG) was formerly known as the Joint Champions Group. The  name was changed in late 2016 to better reflect the work and purpose of the  group.

What is  the TCG?

The TCG was established in 2005 to provide tenants with an  opportunity to contribute to the planning and delivery of housing services in  the ACT. It is a partnership between Housing ACT (HACT) and tenants and provides  a forum in which HACT can consult directly with those accessing its services  and properties. The TCG enables tenants to be actively involved in the development  of solutions to identified service delivery or policy issues and allows the sharing  of information on key projects and initiatives.

The TCG meets on average every six weeks. An ambitious work  programme has been endorsed by the current group and includes consultations on  a range of Housing ACT operational and policy matters.
Members of the TCG do not have a representative function and  do not solve personal issues relating to specific tenancies.

Meeting  updates

TCG members  are keen to ensure that the group’s work activities are made public and that it  is accessible to all public housing tenants. A summary report will be published  here following each of
the group’s  regular meetings.

The regular TCG updates provided in the Housing ACT Home Front newsletter are provided below  for information.

How can  you join the TCG

Members are chosen by an expression of interest process which  is advertised in the Housing ACT Home  Front newsletter. A panel comprising staff from HACT and two  independent people evaluate each expression of interest  which is designed to ensure a diverse membership for the group. It is  particularly important for prospective members to demonstrate that they are  able to work collaboratively.

The next expression of interest  will be advertised in mid 2018.
