A Tenants and Residents Association (TARA) is a group of people who work together to improve the area in which they live. Associations are voluntary groups who ensure your community has a stronger voice and that you can make a difference.
The Doncaster Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations (DFTRA) is the borough wide body that all TARAs and TCs (Tenant's Club) are members of. There are currently 55 TARAs and TCs in the Doncaster Borough.
The DFTRA has a committee that meet regularly to discuss both local and national housing issues, they are known as the Standing Joint Committee (SJC). The SJC consists of 8 St Leger Tenants, 4 Residents, 1 Housing Association Tenant and 1 Private Sector Tenant.
Every month there is a formal consultation between St Leger Homes and the SJC to ensure that the views of the community are included in all aspects of housing management.
The DFTRA is based at the Tenants' and Residents' Resource Centre, 40 St James Street, Doncaster. Please click here to see map. The office opening hours are 9am to 12:30pm Monday - Friday.
The Tenants and residents Resource Centre benefits from; ICT Facilities; Large Meeting Room; Information Bank and a small meeting room for private discussions.
