The Tenants Union exists to improve the lives of renters across the UK, rebalance power in the rental sector, and be a collective voice for its members.

We’re TUUK, a Union for UK based tenants.

The Tenants Union exists to improve the lives of renters across the UK, rebalance power in the rental sector, and be a collective voice for its members.

We – the Tenants Union members – support each other by developing essential services as ways to take back power for ourselves and in response to the lived problems we’ve faced. As renters, we can be pretty vulnerable: from delayed repairs to stolen deposits, from damp and mould to unsafe buildings, from cramped living conditions to evictions, we’re open to all kinds of inconveniences and exploitation.

But as members of a union we have strength in numbers, in expertise, and in targeted services that overcome these injustices. As members of the Tenants Union, we work to have safe, secure and happy homes. Together we have the power to hold landlords to account, transform the rental sector in the UK, and protect ourselves and our homes.

We’re open right now! If you want to join, support or volunteer then click below.

This is the founding of a modern union kickstarted with people, not money. We are using the imagination of our volunteers and modern technology to stretch what resources we have to best meet your needs. The TuuKBot is here for you to tell us what problems you’ve had while renting, help you support the union by joining, donating and most importantly right now – volunteering. This is your Tenants Union, what #ChangeForTenants would you like to see?

Volunteering is going to be vital for a Tenants Union that’s effective.

We want our union to be representative of our members and the time they have available to help out fellow renters through collective action. We’d love you all to be able to help with research, canvassing and establishing local support groups. Equally it’s essential that you spread the word when you can, as smoothly as possible. So we’ve put together a quick starter pack for you to download below.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A full Tenants Union UK mission statement
  • A copy of our general information flyer
  • A “we are members” window poster
  • A top 5 quick actions list
