Government launches new Social Housing Quality Resident Panel

07 December 2022

The Social Housing Quality Resident Panel has officially launched bringing together 250 social housing tenants from across the country.

The panel forms part of the government’s commitment in the Social Housing White Paper to rebalance the relationship between tenants and landlords.

The panel will advise on the development of measures in upcoming legislation and proposed approaches to driving up social housing quality. Members of the panel will share their experiences with ministers, inform policy change and ensure resident voices shape the government’s plans to reform social housing.

Residents will discuss a number of topics including the review of the Decent Homes Standard, the effectiveness of the complaints system and improving tenants' access to information about their landlords. 

We welcome the launch of the new resident panel as it provides social housing residents with an opportunity to make their voices heard and help shape social housing reforms.
