About us

Founded in the 1980s as the National Tower Blocks Network, we regrouped in 2017 as Tower Blocks UK - a hub for sharing information and resources with groups and individuals who live in, or are concerned about tower block housing safety issues in the UK. 

Our aims are to:

  • Support tenants and residents to be heard by providing more opportunities to exert pressure on decision-makers to prevent continued inadequate action and ongoing risk.

  • Extend the services that we provide to include online information resources, pro-forma systems for implementing housing rights and open fire safety and structural data.

  • Share examples of good practice in tackling tower block safety problems, from tenants and residents and landlords.

We Say

There needs to be

  • A systematic review of all Large Panel System blocks

  • Serious improvements to the Building Regulations

  • The introduction of procedures to enable tenants and residents to implement the Building Regulations when they have concerns

  • The installation of sprinklers in all tall blocks

  • The removal of dangerous cladding

  • Money from government to make these changes possible.
