More about the SGTO

SGTO originated from the Association of London Housing Estates, which was founded by the London County Council in the late 1950s. In 1984, Southwark tenants decided to set up their own organisations and be responsible for their own affairs.

The Southwark Group of Tenants Organisation (SGTO) has been in existence for about twenty-three years now. Through the years, SGTO has been involved (amongst other things) in campaigning for better housing conditions, tenants’ rights and tenants’ involvement in decision making.

In the past year, SGTO has undergone enormous changes in structure to meet Council tenants needs. The rejuvenated SGTO is now strategically positioned to promote Southwark Council tenants rights, ensure tenants involvement in decision making, safer communities and encourage ethnic and cultural diversity.

It should be noted that the term ‘tenant’ represents both Southwark Council tenants and Southwark Homeowners who pay service charges to Southwark Council.
