We ran another online session with Matthew Cooke, from our partners at Thistle Tenants Risks on Tuesday 8 December 2020, which was well attended.  More information on what it was about is noted below:

Many economic commentators expect challenging circumstances in the coming period.  As ever in such situations, there is always the danger that people of more modest means will end up bearing a disproportionate share of the expected hardship.  And, as many of you look forward to increasing the volume of new lets, it will be crucially important that new tenants are not then exposed to a potential further blow of coping with calamitous uninsured loss.

This was a short, coffee break session of 20 - 30 minutes and was of interest to all housing services staff, welfare rights workers, senior staff and governing body members having an interest in this general area of work.  There was no sales pitch and instead Matthew simply covered the positive role that moderately priced contents insurance can play in helping better sustain new and ongoing tenancies. He reminded us of the simple arrangements that Thistle have in place to support RSL’s and provided details of all up to date relevant contacts at his end.
