RAUK is one of the projects run by the Good Services Bureau. We hope to improve people's lives personally and within their communities by providing information, referrals and support to residents and residents' associations around the country, as well as private individuals who may need some guidance.  Although we can't promise to fix all your problems but we can promise you won't have to face them alone.  Whilst this is a massive task to undertake, we know it's not impossible because as Muhammad Ali once said:

 Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.  Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.'

Sam Wetherell, a professional academic historian based at the University of York is currently carrying out research on urban redevelopment in Britain and touches on the rental sector. He is looking for volunteers to share historical material, particularly the minutes, newsletters and so on of private residents associations in high density flats and specifically interested in the period between 1970 and 1990, possibly stretching to 2000 as an absolute limit.

All material, if cited, would be done so only with the permission of those that provide it and in that instance all sensitive material, including names, addresses and so on would be redacted. Academic publishing, unlike journalism, operates under strict ethics guidelines about anonymity of living subjects so members could share their material in confidence with me. 

Please email info at residentsassociations.co.uk if you can assist with this research
