We Asked

We asked Council tenants what an extended Tenants' Discount Scheme should look like.

You Said

Through the results from the online survey and focus group discussion with tenants, it was found that:

  • Discount on food and household goods would be the priority for most tenants. This was followed by discounts on telecommunications and clothes;
  • Tenants would prefer to use a simple discount card;
  • Tenants expressed that they carry out their daily shopping in local convenience stores but travel further to carry out their weekly or monthly shops in larger supermarkets;
  • Transport (particularly taxis) was highlighted as an area where discounts could help;
  • Tenants would also be interested in discounts on DIY, furniture and leisure activities; and
  • Some tenants said that they use the internet for shopping and some had used it to get a supermarket delivery service.

We Did

The feedback from the tenants will help to shape the extended Tenants' Discount Scheme. 

We Asked

We asked Council tenants to help us to design a new energy advice service.

You Said

Talking to energy companies on the tenants' bahalf and helping tenants to find the best energy provider and tariff were seen as the most important elements of the new energy advice service.

We Did

The Council introduced a new energy advice service on 5 February 2018, which is being delivered by Changeworks on the Council’s behalf. Over a two year pilot Changeworks will provide a range of advice services to at least 1,000 tenants a year to ensure their homes are easier to heat and resolve any issues they have with their energy suppliers. An energy advisor will be based in each of the locality areas to ensure that they work closely with frontline staff and deliver the best service possible for tenants.
