Consultation feedback and next steps

Following extensive feedback from our two-month consultation, we have published a revised version of the Together with Tenants plan and charter.

We want to thank everyone who shared their views on our draft plan via our online survey, workshops, events, conversations and by email and the revised plan and charter is now available. 

Consultation feedback

We received a large volume of feedback to our consultation, which ran from 20 February to 19 April, including more than 2,500 responses to our online survey, three quarters of which came from tenants and residents. We also engaged more than 500 people in our events and workshops. 

We have now taken the time to analyse and consider the feedback, which we have summarised in a consultation feedback report. In addition to this summary, we as a Federation have responded to the feedback explaining how we intend to take it forward. You can read our response here

Next steps

We recently took the consultation feedback and proposed changes to the Together with Tenant Tenant Advisory Panel and Member Steering Group for consideration. They outlined the changes they believe we need to make to the plan and the charter. 

You can read the revised plan and charter here (July 2019).

Our next steps are to work with our early adopter housing associations to test and evaluate the revised plan and charter together with their tenants and residents. We have appointed an external research consortium to facilitate this process and ensure that we capture and share the findings across the sector. 

We anticipate that the early adopter programme will run until spring 2020, after which we will make further changes to the plan and the charter, followed by a full sector rollout. 

You can find out more about the early adopter programme here.

National Housing Summit

A group of early adopters will be sharing their initial progress at the National Housing Summit on 25-26 September. This will be an opportunity to hear about how the plan works in practice, how housing associations are working with tenants and residents, and what opportunities there are for improvement.
