The Tenant Participatory Advisory Service (TPAS) is the national tenant and landlord participation advisory service for Scotland. It works with tenants and landlords to improve housing conditions and services at a local level. TPAS is a not-for-profit organisation.

The Tenants Information Service (TIS) provides independent information, advice and training for tenants. Since 1989 it has been a major contributor to developing good tenant participation practice across Scotland. It offers services to assist tenants and landlords to review and put their tenant participation strategies into practice. A key part of its work is supporting tenants and landlords to review housing services and standards to improve service delivery.

TIGHRA promotes tenant participation in rural communities across Scotland.
