Shapps launches tenant panels to hold landlords to account

Housing minister Grant Shapps has launched a training programme aimed at preparing social tenants to sit on panels which will hold landlords to account. The scheme, which is backed by £535,000, will ensure that residents have the skills necessary to staff the tenant panels, as well as resolve minor issues such as anti-social behaviour and repairs. The funding is expected to train around 1,500 social tenants and will provide eight different training courses. It is also aimed at giving tenants an opportunity to study towards qualifications. Shapps announced he will launch a competition for charities and voluntary groups to bid to offer the training and confirmed that landlords will be expected to work with residents and provide information needed in order to assess them.
