Together with Tenants

The National Housing Federation (NHF) has developed a plan to strengthen the relationship between residents and housing providers – and they want your feedback.

The NHF is the body that regulates all housing providers in the UK, and they’ve been working with groups of residents and members of the NHF to understand how they can make the relationship between residents and providers better.  

They’ve come up with a four point action plan:

  • A new charter that sets out what residents can expect from their landlord
  • Residents will scrutinise the charter and report on how their landlord is doing against the charter commitments
  • A new requirement in our Code of Governance for Boards to be held accountable to their residents
  • A closer link with regulation

You can view the four point draft plan here.

How can I get involved?

We’re carrying out a survey on the new charter which sets out 8 commitments to residents. Fill out the survey and be in with the chance to win £100.

Focus Groups - Daytime, Evening and Afternoon

We’re running focus groups to review the plan:
