Scrutiny Involvement for Tenants (SIFT)

Scrutiny Involvement for Tenants (SIFT)

The Scrutiny Involvement for Tenants (SIFT) group scrutinises the Council’s housing services. 

The group of tenants and leaseholders are all volunteers. Together they look into the issues affecting the management of their homes.

The group can:

  • choose which services to scrutinize, and prioritise key areas to look at

  • involve tenants and leaseholders in their activities

  • collect and analyse evidence

  • make recommendations to senior management at Newcastle City Council to improve services

  • agree action plans, then track and review their progress

  • tell other tenants what the panel is doing and encourage them to get involved
