â€˜Biggest ever' social housing tenants survey to take place
Housing Partners Ltd is planning a survey which it claims will be the biggest ever survey of the social housing sector.
The Tenant Survey has been designed to provide a “decisive snapshot of tenant opinion.” It plans to use its HomeSwapper mutual exchange service, which gives it access to over 850,000 tenants, to send out a 20-question survey over the course of two weeks in May, reports 24dash.
With a potentially large number of responses, the company says that its findings will not only be “statistically significant, but should provide the most comprehensive picture of tenant thinking ever gathered in this country”.
The survey plans to look at the performance of landlords according to tenants alongside tenants beliefs on welfare reforms and the government’s handling of the sector.
Richard Blundell, Housing Partners’ CEO, said: “We work in a sector with around five million tenants, and social homes account for 17% of all UK dwellings, but the views of these tenants are rarely considered by the industry, the government and the nation as a whole. With the welfare reforms agreed in 2012 now well underway, the need for insight into this sector is greater than ever. “No other organisation has access to as many tenants as we do through HomeSwapper, and as such we see it as our duty to carry out this survey. We believe that by giving a voice to the UK’s millions of social housing residents, we can establish a better channel of communication between them, their landlords and government, and help to change the sector for the better.”
