Our scrutiny team

Working better together

The scrutiny team is an independent customer group that makes sure that at Selwood Housing, our services are effective and that our ways of working take into account our customers' perspective.

The scrutiny team is part of something called co-regulation, which is where tenants, rather than the government, make sure that housing associations are doing what they should be doing.

The team produces reports and recommendations for service improvements, for our leadership team and board. You can review these reports opposite.

We currently have eleven customers who make up our scrutiny team. Meet the team and find out more about what it's like to be part of scrutiny here.

Current activities

The scrutiny team most recently completed a report on communication within the complaints process and are now reviewing the enhanced housing management service within sheltered housing.
