The first of its kind, the Social Housing Tenants’ Climate Jury saw 30 social housing tenants from across the North of England come together to discuss how climate change impacts their lives.

The Jury has worked over 30 hours, and ten weeks, to produce a set of recommendations to the sector; their views as social housing tenants as to how to answer the question “how can tenants, social housing providers, and others work together to tackle climate change in our homes and neighbourhoods?”

Tackling climate change is as much a tenant engagement consideration as an asset management issue, and central to answering this question was how the process of decarbonising homes can be as much as possible made a collaborative effort between landlord and tenant.

The process was designed and facilitated by the social enterprise Shared Future. The report explains the process followed and, in their own words, the Jury’s conclusion responding to the Jury question in the form of a statement and, of course, their recommendations.

The Social Housing Tenants’ Climate Jury was commissioned by the Northern Housing Consortium in partnership with five housing associations: First Choice Homes Oldham, Karbon Homes, Salix Homes, Thirteen Group, and Yorkshire Housing.
