Sedgemoor Tenants Voice (STV) is a group of involved tenants who work with Homes in Sedgemoor to make sure we are providing the best possible services to tenants. It has close links with Homes in Sedgemoor's Board and Sedgemoor District Council. It is a consultative group and its job is to challenge how we do things. STV checks our performance against what we should be doing and asks questions if things aren't going so well. STV also looks at the issues that matter to you in your community such as anti-social behaviour and repairs.
We ask STV members for their opinion about lots of things! Making sure we take tenants' views on board is crucial so every time we are thinking of changing something or if we are updating policies or information - we talk to STV first.
