What is it ?
Tenant scrutiny is more than just another tenant participation activity. It is a way of giving tenants greater influence and the ability to hold their landlords to account by exercising more power over the business decisions, governance and performance of their landlord.
Tenant involvement in the scrutiny of a landlord’s performance is rooted in the principle that landlords take account of the following
Tenant scrutiny gives tenants an active stake in the running of their landlord’s business rather than just being recipients of services. It enables staff and tenants to work in partnership to achieve better performance and improved outcomes.
How can I get involved ?
We have a core group of people involved and we are currently looking for more tenants who would be interested in being part of the scrutiny process. It is a great chance to talk with other tenants & staff about the things that matter to you and about how we provide our services. You can help us create changes for the better.
We can provide help with training and will meet reasonable expenses such as travel costs.
