At Dudley Federation, our main role is to support the Tenants and Residents Associations (TRAs) in our membership in any way possible as well as encourage the development of new TRAs. We also provide other tenants and residents in the Dudley Borough with any advice and guidance that they may need.
We work closely with Dudley Council and their partners which allows us and local communities to participate in the decision making process and be kept up to date with important news.
Pre-Covid, we held quarterly general meetings. We still produce a quarterly newsletter to keep our members informed and are looking to hold a virtual AGM in January 2022. We also send out regular emails to our members and contacts in between meetings to keep them fully aware of any important issues, we will also include any information that we think may be useful. If you wish to be included on our contact list please email us to let us know or sign up at: https://dudleyfed.interests.me/
We are always working to make ourselves more open, transparent and above all – useful to our members (TRAs). On this site you will find details of our service level agreement with Dudley Council as well as documents relating to the running of the organisation.
Here are a few examples of the changes that we have made in recent years:
A new and more informative logo was launched
A fully functional resource centre with new opening times is available to TRA members
We provide regular email contact for those who would like it
Feedback from Council and Partnership Meetings is given at General Meetings
Training in co-operation with the Participation Development Team is available to TRAs
We also aim for TRAs to be celebrated more for their Achievements, and provide help where needed.
Dudley Federation of Tenant & Residents Associations (DFTRA) was established in 1991 from a Chair’s and Secretary’s organisation. It became an umbrella forum that represents Tenant & Residents Associations from across the Dudley Borough. DFTRA has a close working relationship with numerous partner agencies and actively encourages local communities to participate in the decision making process. DFTRA offers communities the chance to have one united voice.
