About The CRF


Why a Federation?

To have an organisation just for the residents, independent of The Connect Board of Management and Connect staff.

We need more and better information – as a Federation it is easier to get better information and invite high-level staff to talk to us.

A Federation gives us more power – there is strength in numbers.

Our Federation is part of the Community Network of the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds. Connect tenants and their families can buy reduced price tickets at £10 each to see shows at the Playhouse. Access is available to everyone by way of audio described (for the blind and partially sighted), captioned and signed (for the deaf and hard of hearing) performances. The Playhouse is fully accessible and there is disabled parking available outside the main entrance.

For further information or to join the Theatre Group mailing list, Please contact Maureen Kershaw by e-mail at: Alternatively, you can call Connect and ask to speak to Lisa Longbottom via 0300 5000 600.

Our Federation helps to bring people together and gives us a broader view of what is happening across Connect.

Our Federation will give us more of a say. We  decide how and where the annual CRF Community Priority Fund is spent, are involved in appointing contractors and are consulted on policy changes.

We want to ensure that Connect does not forget that it is not JUST a business. Our Federation gives us the opportunity to build trust between:

  • Connect Staff
  • Board Members
  • Tenants and Residents

Our Federation is about working in partnership with our landlord, not confrontation.
