What is HFTRA
Harrow Federation of Tenants and Residents Association is the umbrella organisation for all Tenants and Residents Associations and Estate Representatives recognised by the London Borough of Harrow.
HFTRA was initially formed in the early 90s and has occupied its current office in Civic 8 since 1998. We have steadily built up our membership and to date have many associated TRAs which include Harrow's sheltered blocks.
Our aim is to promote contact between the various TRAs and Estate representatives in the borough, encouraging them to take a more active part in decisions that Harrow Council make by providing information on meetings of both Housing and its relevant Focus Groups.
Although Council funded, we are an independent organisation. We assist TRAs and their members as an intermediary between themselves and Harrow Council if they have a problem that cannot be resolved directly between themselves and Harrow Council’s Housing Department.
How can I become a member?
If you live on an estate without a TRA and wish to form one or would like to become an Estate Representative, contact the Resident Involvement Team, who will assist you in setting up an inaugural meeting on your estate to found a TRA. We will attend your inaugeral meeting and provide fliers and posters to publicise this meeting. We will also provide other information you may require.
What do HFTRA do for TRAs?
We provide support to our TRAs and Estate Representives to take up Social Housing issues with the Council. This can be anything from problems with ground maintenance, repairs, caretaking issues, noise or other issues where you feel that you are not getting answers or help to resolve to your problems.
How else does HFTRA do to help member TRAs etc?
We help with the design and printing of leaflets and fliers, as well as provide free printing and copying of notices and other TRA paperwork that is required.
Provide stationary for TRA usage (paper, envelopes, folders, and other consumable items). Short term loan of a laptop computer and/or printer can be provided.
