Get Involved

Here at Tuntum we want each and every resident to be happy with the service that they receive from us, and that means listening to what you have to say. 

We believe that listening to and involving our residents in the running of the organisation is vital to our success, so we can focus on the areas you tell us are most important to you.

Below is a list of ways you can get involved with us.

Magnify is our residents’ scrutiny panel. They work together with Tuntum staff and its Board to look closely at all aspects of its service and make recommendations as to how improvements can be made.

Our award winning independent complaints panel (ICP) made up of involved tenants from a number of partner landlords, are continuing their great work! So far this year the Independent Complaints panel have dealt with two complaints, one each involving Luminus Group and Derwent Living. The members spent a great deal of time examining evidence and speaking to staff and complainants before arriving at their recommendations. The ICP, supported by TPAS, provide a valuable service to the complainants and the landlords by trying to broker an amicable resolution to complaints.

If you are a good listener, a resolution-seeker and can spare four hours per month, why not apply to join?

Full training is provided and expenses such as travel are covered. Contact us or call 0115 916 6066 for more information.

There are times when we want to discuss an aspect of our service in more detail with residents, and focus groups are a great way for us to find out your opinions and hear your suggestions. We have run focus groups on things like our repairs handbook, our business plan and our website. Please contact us if you are interested in finding out more.

We publish our newsletter, Engage, four times a year, and we welcome articles or ideas for articles from residents. Contact Becky Henry or call 0115 916 6084 for more information.

You can read previous issues of Engage here.

Feedback from our residents is the best way we can continually improve our services. If you have a comment, compliment, complaint or suggestion, you can use our contact form to let us know. 

We use an independent organisation to run regular residents satisfaction surveys on our behalf. Residents are chosen at random, so you may be asked to answer a telephone questionnaire. We really value your feedback, so if you get the call, please spare a few minutes to share your views.

Sometimes a member of staff might contact you to find out your views on a particular subject – everything you tell us helps us make decisions about Tuntum about the services it provides.

Residents are welcome to apply for a position on our Board whenever there is a vacancy. Being a Board member means you can help shape the strategic direction of the organisation. For more information on our Board, including vacancies and the application process, click here.

If you have ideas about how to improve your community or the service you receive from Tuntum, contact us or call 0115 916 6066.
