Each Home Counts Review 12 May 2017

Hello    

The Review workstreams are making good progress developing the implementation plans for the Review recommendations.  The workstream leads are busy planning meetings, attending events and working with wider industry colleagues to ensure their implementation plans meet the Review vision and are appropriate for the sector.

As part of this process, the Implementation Board members will be meeting on 14th June to share their progress and plans on their workstreams, ensure all relevant connections are made between workstreams and to ensure the implementation of all the recommendations are on track.

Alongside, the Review team are continuing attending meetings with various government officials, updating them on the progress of the Review implementation plans.

Code of Conduct/Consumer Protection update

On Thursday 11 May, Howard Porter presented an update on the Each Home Counts review to the TrustMark Forum, which included consumer group representatives and a group of TrustMark scheme operators working across a wide range of trades.

Howard encouraged the Forum members to start preparing for the implementation of the review’s recommendations, and helped explain how industry can start identifying areas for action.

The main message about getting involved and engaged with the review was particularly well received by those in attendance, with Forum members coming forward with positive views and suggestions which will now feed directly into the Quality Mark workstream, led by TrustMark chief executive Simon Ayers.
