Run by the Association of Community Organisations for Reform Now (ACORN), Renter's Voice Manchester will build capacity, confidence, and infrastructure to give vulnerable renters in Greater Manchester an organisation to speak for and with them.
The project will provide a programme of training and support over two years to develop renters' groups that help tenants feel happy and secure in their homes by making sure people know their rights, feel confident to use them, and can go on to help others facing similar circumstances.
Our leaders and organisers provide support and mentoring to help transform people’s housing experiences. This includes coaching in verbal and written communication, knowing your rights, negotiation, developing shared strategy, planning community campaigns and actions, taking on leadership roles, and more.
ACORN is the UK’s only independent community union, with over 2,500 donating members across the UK. We exist to give deprived, marginalised communities much more control over the things that are important to them. To achieve this, we bring people together and provide training to enable them to form powerful, effective, and connected local groups that work together to speak for themselves and solve their own problems.
