The handbook explains all your rights and responsibilities as a tenant of Hawthorn Housing Co-operative. It also provides advice, so you can enjoy your home as fully as possible.

Every member has received a printed copy of the handbook however, we realise that some people may have poor sight and would find it difficult to read. We are therefore going to provide a CD version for people in this situation. We are also translating the handbook into mandarin and Arabic for people who do not have English as their first language.

If you require an audio or a mandarin version of the handbook please contact the office and one will be sent out to you.

The handbook has been partly funded by the Community Benefit Award we receive as founder members of the Scottish Procurement Alliance.

A copy of the handbook is available through the link here.
