Independent Tenant and Homeowner Adviser

In September the Housing Regeneration team worked with Phoebe Connell (Vice-Chair of the Residents’ Steering Group) to appoint an Independent Tenant and Homeowner Adviser (ITHA) for Benhill. Together we assessed four experienced Resident Advisers, before agreeing on the selection of Communities First Foundation (CFF) as the ITHA for Benhill.

As the ITHA for Benhill, Communities First Foundation will: 

  • Provide independent advice and support 
  • Represent your views and interests 
  • Help residents and resident groups to get involved in shaping proposals and options for the estate 
  • Provide clear advice on council proposals and commitments, and any legislation 
  • Help residents to get involved in their estate and the decision-making processes on the  future of their homes and community 
  • Offer support in negotiating with the council 
  • Provide access to specialist financial, legal and property advice 
  • Offer training so you can take part in and contribute to discussions
