Over 700 tenants gave their thoughts on the energy crisis and pathway to Net Zero. Our National Tenant Pulse Survey explores topics and give insight and recomendations.

All Wales Tenant Pulse: 2nd Annual Survey on attitudes to the Energy Crisis & Net Zero

Our latest Tenant pulse is focused on energy crisis and attitudes to Net Zero. This is the second time we have run this type of survey. As the energy crisis is changing rapidly, we will not wait a whole year do repeat this full survey. We intent to do a smaller pulse over winter just focused on energy crisis. 

We had the 2nd largest response rate to date for Tenant Pulse with over 700 tenants across social housing and private renting tenants. We were delighted to have a wide demographic of tenants, including a notable uplift in younger private renters responding.

We believe the findings and recommendations offer valuable insight into the challenges tenants are experiencing and how tenants feel about their homes and communities.

Tenant Pulse is the official Wales-wide panel for tenants giving their views on the things that matter right to them. It is created 4 years ago by TPAS Cymru (under a programme of work supported by Welsh Government). It’s run quarterly on topical issues and help shape housing policy in Wales. It covers tenants of both social housing (Housing Associations and Council housing) plus private renters including students and those in supported housing.

If you are a tenant, why not join our Tenant Pulse panel and have your say?

We discussed our Tenant Pulse findings from this survey during our September 2022 Tenant Network, and heard some feedback from tenants on the survey. As this Pulse survey was run prior to the major energy cost increases, we are interested in running a smaller Pulse survey further into the winter months to get a closer look at how tenants are handling the cost of living crisis.
