TSA launches diversity plan for social housing

It includes how the TSA will work with tenants, providers and other stakeholders to ensure that the needs of different tenants across the six diversity groups of ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, gender, and religion/belief are identified and taken into account. The scheme and action plan also set out what the TSA intends to do in order to meet its duties under existing and proposed equality legislation.

Phil Morgan, Executive Director Tenant Services said: "Equality in housing and related services are of paramount importance for the TSA not only as the regulator but also as an employer.

"For tenants, local authority and housing association landlords, and other stakeholders who have an interest in equality issues, this consultation is an opportunity to influence how we develop our Single equalities scheme and action plan. The views we get back will inform how we will work effectively with the housing sector to promote equality and diversity."

Everyone with an interest in social housing is invited to comment on the consultation document. The deadline for comments is 31 March 2010.
