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.
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.

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.
