Scrutiny Panel

The Scrutiny Panel are an independent team of tenant volunteers who work closely with the Trust to review the housing and maintenance service and the policies and performance in these areas. The Scrutiny Panel play a key role in ensuring that the Trust offers a service that represents good value for money. 

There are currently 5 tenant Scrutiny Panel members, 3 of which joined in 2023. The panel have an annual programme of work which includes quarterly meetings, conducting deep dive scrutiny reviews, providing activity reports to the Board of Trustees, supporting stage 3 complaint investigations and providing feedback on other service specific areas on an ad hoc basis. A deep dive scrutiny review is where the panel explore, examine and test a specific area of service delivery. They investigate what is currently in place and make recommendations for improvements based on the evidence gathered during the scrutiny exercise.

To support the panel members Papworth Trust provides a programme of informal and formal training. We work in partnership with TPAS (external tenant engagement organisation) who support us to provide the panel with training and development to assist them in their roles.
