EDDC appeals for people to join its Tenant Scrutiny Panel.

Could you be committed to improving services for East Devon District Council’s tenants?

The council is looking for people willing to be part of its Tenant Scrutiny Panel

The panel is a new and completely different way to get involved in how services are checked and improved.

Its role is to scrutinise services, make recommendations and work with housing officers to make improvements to services that may not be meeting tenants’ and leaseholders’ needs.

Panel members will have a real opportunity to make a difference and gain some valuable work experience.

If you are enthusiastic, committed and looking to get more out of helping your community the council wants to hear from you. Panel members will enjoy:

· Training and mentoring tailored to you

· Valuable skills

· Developing your self-confidence

· Meeting new people and making new friends

· Making use of your time in a productive way and keeping you active

· Getting expenses for your time and effort.

If you would like more information about the Tenant Scrutiny Panel contact Jane Reading, Tenant and Communities Section Leader, on 01395 516 551 ext 2236 or email tenantparticipation@eastdevon.gov.uk
