Join our Challenge Group

What is the Challenge Group?

Most importantly, the Challenge Group helps us to improve our services that matter most to you. 

The group is made up of 11 members who constructively challenge the Trust’s service quality and performance, influence policy and procedure development, and to ensure the Trust's decisions are in the best interests of our customers.

Our Chair of the Challenge Group, Heather Bilton, looks back at the year 2019/20,

It’s been a really busy year for Challenge Group. We have tackled everything from policies and rent to fire safety and complaints.

We meet regularly to lift the lid on the workings of the Trust and to ask the questions that we think that all tenants would like to ask if they had the chance.
Importantly, we also got involved with a Scrutiny Panel in 2019. This was an in-depth look at one topic and this year the focus was on Mutual Exchanges. We got a chance to understand the current process, ask questions to find a better way, and to make recommendations.



How often does the Challenge Group meet?

Every five weeks for approximately two hours. 

We hold these at a variety of times to suit all lifestyles. 

From November, you'll have the choice to meet in person or virtually using Teams.
