The Tenants' Panel

Our Tenants' Panel needs people like you!

The Tenants' Panel is an over-arching tenant forum.  It will receive reports from the other Panels, will work in partnership with NPH and will pass on to the relevant Panel any issues they need to deal with. It will assist and inform NBC's formal monitoring of NPH's performance.

Why not join the NPH Tenants’ Panel and have the chance to act as a critical friend?  You will be able to work with both NPH, who have delegated responsibility to manage the housing stock and Northampton Borough Council, as landlord and its advisers.

You can make the difference in being involved with issues around the service delivery and things that matter most to you as tenants.  You can have a say in the service improvements, value for money and higher performance and quality standards.

The Tenants’ Panel members will receive appropriate training, information, advice and support to enable tenant members to be able to participate effectively.

If you are interested in joining the tenants' panel or would like more information, please call the customer engagement team on 01604 837836 or e-mail participation@northamptonpartnershiphomes.org.uk

 

Service Improvement Panels

Our Service Improvement Panels need people like you!

The Service Improvement Panels (otherwise known as SIPs) are made up by and led by NPH Tenants.  SIPs meet once a month with NPH employees to raise concerns, discuss improvement possibilities and make recommendations.   

There are a number of SIPs detailed below, each of them relating to a different area of service.  Each SIP will be able to make recommendations as to where improvements can be made.

Communications

This SIP will consider the ways that tenants can access NPH services and make recommendations for our printed, digital and face to face communications:

  • NPH Voice content
  • Checking our communications for plain English
  • How NPH will use digital channels and social media

Money

This SIP will consider the processes that NPH use to notify tenants of arrears, rent increases, evictions and legislation or policy changes.  The group will also feedback on how NPH get value for money.

Maintenance

This SIP will consider the processes used to deal with planned repairs- visits by trades-persons, the reporting of urgent and non-urgent repairs as well as other emergencies.  

Home

This panel will tackle issues that are raised on neighbourhoods and estates, such as:

  • tackling anti-social behaviour
  • looking after the external environment and community areas
  • fly tipping
  • support provided to vulnerable tenants.

Investment

This group looks at our planned investment programme and how we will regenerate our estates.

Our Tenant Scrutiny Panel needs people like you!
