Somerset Tenant Accreditation Scheme
Jonica Wilkenshaw, Scheme Manager, YMCA Somerset Coast on behalf of Sedgemoor Council
The recently improved Tenant Accreditation Scheme, funded by Sedgemoor, West Somerset and Taunton council, delivered by YMCA Somerset Coast, has been running for 5 years in this area, specifically to provide accredited tenants into the Registered Social Housing and Private Rented sectors. This interesting and useful presentation describes the module-based course that each tenant completes so that the landlord can have a degree of confidence in the knowledge, skillls, and responsibilities of the tenant. The accreditation is not awarded to everyone, only those who have the skills and knowledge to live and manage their tenancies to a satisfactory level.
