LSE and Trafford Hall Housing Plus Think Tank: 

Tenants’ experiences of energy saving in social housing

Monday 1st – Tuesday 2nd June

Trafford Hall, near Chester

 

Housing Plus is about social landlords adopting a wider role in communities where they are based.  In poorer households and areas, social landlords need to reinforce their role as landlords with support for tenants if they are to manage their properties and make neighbourhood good places to live in.  Tenants need this wider help in order to cope with changes in rents and cuts in benefits, maximise employment opportunities and develop new skills. Fuel poverty and energy inefficiency make it difficult for tenants and landlords – juggling bills becomes inevitable but difficult. 

Energy Plus is about helping social landlords and tenants find ways to reduce energy use in homes to tackle fuel poverty, pay rising bills and combat arrears. Some social landlords are doing innovative projects, but there is a need to share this knowledge within the sector and more widely.

This think tank is specifically for social housing tenants, tenant representatives and frontline staff who accompany tenants and can contribute to the debate.
