News from SIFT

SIFT would like to thank all customers and staff who have had an input in our scrutinies past and present.

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, SIFT have taken the advice from health officials and Newcastle City Council to cease face to face meetings until further notice.  We, in line with the Government will review this decision on a month to month basis.  We want what is best for everybody who we come into contact with, whether its staff or members of the public.  Your safety and the safety of SIFT members and staff is paramount.

We shall endeavour to carry out our next scrutinies using non face to face methods and produce reports as normal in keeping with our scoping.

We had hoped to hold a recruitment event this month and had a large amount of interest which had to be postponed.  Although we can not accept new members for the foreseeable future there are ways you can still get involved with us.  For example, you could complete some Mystery Shopping via telephone, complete surveys to provide us with much needed information directly from the tenant/customer etc.

You can follow us on Twitter via @SIFT_NEWCASTLE for regular updates.

Stay safe during this difficult time and reach out to Your Homes Newcastle and Newcastle City Council should you require assistance or information.
