You can find details of previous in-depth review projects that have been completed:
A recent project carried out was rent first.
When people face economic hardship, it may be difficult to pay the rent which means they can fall into rent arrears. Thirteen needs to make sure that paying the rent is the most important consideration when receiving services from their landlord.
The rent first approach is to help customers stay in their homes, support the financial viability of the landlord, and ensure that services for customers can be maintained despite the economic challenges.

Thirteen’s strategic plan
Thirteen’s strategic plan is an important document that sets out how we are looking to develop our services over the next few years.
The plan gives us an outline for how we will work to provide people with homes, support and opportunities to grow.
We consulted with tenants and customers on the draft strategic plan to get their opinions on the plan. We produced a report to give you information about the findings of the strategic plan consultation.pdf
Home gardening service
