We actively encourage involvement here at Homes in Sedgemoor. There’s an opportunity to suit everyone, so why not join other customers in making a difference?

Involvement can take as much or as little of your time as you decide. By joining one of our Involved Customer Groups, you will help to shape our services now and for the future.

We have a number of different customer groups which you could become involved with including our Sedgemoor Tenants Assurance Committee, our Neighbourhood Champions and our consultation groups.

Sedgemoor Tenants Assurance Committee (STAC)

STAC ensures that agreed service delivery standards to all tenants, shared owners and leaseholders is achieved and that Homes in Sedgemoor meets the expectations and outcomes of the Consumer Regulatory standards. 

Meet the Sedgemoor Tenants Assurance Committee

Sarah – Chairperson

I am passionate about ensuring housing is fit to combat the effects of climate change and to achieve the net zero carbon emission targets.  My experience in this area includes being trained by Al Gore as a Climate Reality Leader. “

“I applied to be a member of STAC as I feel it is very important for the tenant’s voice to be heard and to create a positive future narrative for social tenants and housing.”
“I applied to be a member of the STAC as I wanted to Continue being an involved tenant.”
STAC member Pauline
“I hope to make a difference by supporting our local community and making it a better place to live and enhance our quality of life here in Sedgemoor. I look forward to seeing things from both sides as a tenant and the other side as landlords of the properties we live in.
“The reason for joining the group was to explore the issues that can impact tenants and to try to improve the services they receive through a robust assurance overview to ensure that the quality aims of HiS are being implemented.”

I applied to become a member of STAC to be part of the link between Homes and Sedgemoor and its residents and help in any way he can in making things better, easier for tenants.”

  6. Customer Led Scrutiny

    Customer scrutiny allows a small group of customers to monitor and comment on the services that Homes in Sedgemoor delivers. Scrutiny reviews and reports on how well we are doing and identifies any recommendations for improvement. It’s an independent check on the standard of service that HiS are providing to tenants, and recommendations give us clear and specific areas to act on and improve.
