The Swedish Union of Tenants is the largest organisation of its type in Sweden with 555 862 members. The Swedish Union of Tenants is devoted to making sure that everyone has the right to good housing at an affordable cost, by promoting better housing for all.
By organising tenants, the Tenants’ Association participates in, takes responsibility for and is a driving force in the development of the community. This includes: being a vital meeting place for housing issues; creating empowerment, safety and community in neighbourhoods; providing knowledge, support and services to members; inviting dialogue and cooperation with other partners; using data and experience from people’s own homes to influence policy and legislation; and negotiating rents for Sweden’s tenants.
