A random sample of Karbon Homes' customers are being invited to be part of a tenants’ jury to understand how tenants, social housing providers and others, can work together to tackle climate change in our homes and neighbourhoods.
The Jury has been created by The Northern Housing Consortium (NHC) and partners Thirteen Group, Yorkshire Housing, Salix Homes, and First Choice Homes Oldham.
The Social Housing Tenants’ Climate Jury will see 30 social housing tenants from across the North meet online over 10 weeks between July and September 2021.
The Jury will explore tenants’ views on retrofit, their opinions of specific measures, and their preferences for how these kinds of interventions should be undertaken in their homes and neighbourhoods.
They will also have the chance to say what information they need before, during, and after the retrofit process to use low carbon heating technology confidently.
In the final weeks of the Jury, participants will work together alongside expert facilitators to develop recommendations and the findings will be presented at the Northern Housing Summit on the 2nd and 4th of November.
1,500 letters are being sent to a random sample of our customers. If you receive a letter inviting you to express an interest in being part of the Tenants Jury, please register your interest today.
