Edmundsbury Court Tenants and Residents Association (“Edmundsbury TRA”) aim is to engage tenants, leaseholders, residents in working with each other, with Lambeth Council, the local community and local agencies and facilities so that its residents safety, wellbeing, welfare and sense of belonging can thrive.
The committee’s responsibility is to elicit, without bias, the views, wishes and aspirations of all residents as to how to improve their experience of living on Edmundsbury, and put forward plans to realise the estate’s full potential (inc. applying for grants); to encourage and train new leaders; to manage the community hall and shared spaces equitably.
The role of the TRA Committee is to manage the hall (and other community spaces) to bring in an income to continue making improvements to the fabric and facilities of the hall, and to create a surplus that can be put into a Community Fund, accessible to all residents living on the estate, to fund resident led projects that will have benefits for the whole estate, supported by the membership and TRA.
Areas of focus are:
- Community Engagement
- Environment (garden, food growing and composting)
Fund & Constitution
Our constitution is the rules that we have to abide by as an organisation. You can download them here: Constitution-2016 (Word document). If you don’t think we are living up to our own standards, you can challenge us, call a meeting, or ask Lambeth Council to intervene.
If you have an idea that could benefit the estate and want to apply for money from the Edmundsbury Community Fund or larger funding from Lambeth Council or other grant-givers with the backing of the TRA, please complete this application form (PDF).
