Resident Association Resources
These documents are aimed to help you set up and run a Residents Association.
The first thing you need to have is a Constitution. This sets out the aims and guidelines of your group. We have a template that you can use. Feel free to download our Template Constitution 2015 (PDF, 204KB) and help you to write a constitution that is easy to understand, and that can be reviewed on an annual basis.
Please use this Information Pack (PDF, 709KB) that we have created to give you the information you need to run your group successfully.
Code of Conduct
The code of conduct can be used during all meetings to help things go smoothly and to make sure that the people attending the meeting are aware of how they should behave. You can use our Code of Conduct template (PDF, 194KB) as a guide to create your own code.
Taking minutes of meetings
Every meeting must have minutes taken which will record and decisions made and a brief record of the decisions made. Use our Minutes template (PDF, 8KB) as an example.
Holding a big event
The "Running a big event guide 2015 (PDF, 217KB)" will help you if your group decide to run a big event, like a fun day or a community party.
You will also need to carry out a risk assessment for the event to make sure you know about any potential hazards and have a plan for dealing with them. You will need to fill out the Risk Assessment form (PDF, 105KB).
