EQUALITY

Tenant participation has a strong link with the Association’s Equality Policy and it is important to
recognise that tenant participation includes all tenants, should they choose to participate.


In carrying out its functions Rural Housing Association will have due regard to the need to promote
equality of opportunity between the following groups.
 persons of different religious belief,
 political opinion,
 racial group,
 age,
 marital status or sexual orientation;
 men and women generally;
 persons with a disability and persons without; and
 persons with dependants and persons without

In relation to tenant participation and the provision of information, we are committed to providing
accessible information. No tenant should be discouraged from contributing due to a lack of accessible
information. This means that we will provide documents upon request:


 in large print for those with visual impairment or deteriorating eyesight;
 on tape for those who are unable to read printed matter;
 in Braille for those who prefer this means of communication;
 translated into another language, and;
 In any other feasible format that tenants may find helpful.



MONITOR AND EVALUATE THE SUCCESS OF TENANT PARTICIPATION

The Strategy is intended to cover a three-year period, but will be subject to annual evaluation to help
ensure that it continues to be relevant, current and meets the changing needs and expectations of our
tenants, Board and staff.
