Edinburgh Tenants Federation conducts review of Scottish Social Housing Charter
The review of the Scottish Social Housing Charter was the topic at a busy online meeting of the Edinburgh Tenants Federation, which took place on June 23.
The topic holds a lot of interest for Edinburgh’s tenants and as a result, there were some interesting and lively debates.
Attendees listened to a brief presentation giving an overview of the aims of the Charter review and then were involved in breakout sessions which discussed:
- Over the last five years, how do you think the Charter has contributed to landlord service improvements?
- What outcomes and standards do you think work well and why?
- How do you think the Charter has led to improvements in tenant involvement, participation and scrutiny?
The discussions in the breakout rooms will help to formulate ETF’s response to the review of the Scottish Social Housing Charter. Elsewhere in the meeting, attendees were able to hear about the work ETF has carried out over the last couple of months as we discussed our quarterly Progress Report.
Mark Henry, ETF’s development worker, said: “There were a lot of good discussions in both the breakout rooms and we would like to thank everyone who attended our Federation Meeting as their views will help to shape ETF’s response to the review of the Scottish Social Housing Charter. The review is hugely important to the future of housing in Scotland and we would like to encourage as many tenants and organisations as possible to respond.”
