Talking up our TARA’s

Last week we held our eighth ‘Talk Up TARA’ day for 13 Tenants and Residents Associations (TARA) across Barnsley.

The event was held at Priory Campus and was well attended by over 40 tenants and residents.  It provided the TARAs with the opportunity to share the excellent work they do through videos and presentations. Take a look at our video here.

The TARAs also looked at how new technologies can work for them, the benefits of e-learning and explored how groups can share their resources and have greater partnership working.

Speaking at the event Customer Services and Engagement Manager Sarah Barnes said, “As a voice in their local communities the support we receive from the TARA groups is invaluable and it’s great to see their work celebrated today.”
