Armchair group snip

Tayside Fife and Central Housing Options Hub is looking for volunteers for an armchair group. Can you help?

The HUB is part of a national network set up by the Scottish Government in 2010. The main aim of the Hubs has been to support the development of local Housing Options to improve outcomes for people with housing needs.

An armchair group gathers people who are interested in giving their views about the way services are delivered without the need to attend meetings.

The group will be asked for their views on housing options and homelessness issues including service standards, temporary accommodation, priorities for people using services and staff training.

Become a member of the Hub Armchair Group and give your view

on housing options and Homelessness issues in Angus.

Calling All Homeowners! Have Your Say on Energy Efficiency!


Calling all homeowners

The Scottish Government is consulting with owner-occupiers about setting minimum energy efficiency standards (EPS) for their homes. The proposal sets out a minimum EPC band C from 2024. to make all Scottish homes warmer, greener and more efficient, and for housing to play a full part in Scotland’s efforts to tackle climate change.

This consultation seeks views on proposals to set a standard for energy efficiency and to make it mandatory for homeowners from 2024 onwards.

The Government wants to know:

  • if the standards should be legally binding,
  • what the minimum standard should be,
  • what help can be made available to help households pay for improvements,
  • what the impacts could be.

The consultation will end on 26 March 2020. For more details see the consultation paper and give your views here.SG logo



Beware – Watch Out for Bogus Traders Claiming to be Council Workers

Residents should be on their guard after recent reports of bogus traders claiming to work for the Council.


Trading Standards and Police Scotland have had reports of two men in a van going door-to-door in Angus offering to carry out roofing repairs and claiming to work for the Council.

We would ask residents to be extremely cautious about people who call at houses offering to do roofing or other work. We would strongly advise to never to hand money over if approached in this way and never let the callers into your home.

If Council tenants believe the workers have pointed out a genuine issue with your property they should speak to a housing officer.

Council officers and contractors will always carry ID so remember to request ID badges.

If you or someone you know are approached by these people you can report the incident to Police Scotland by calling 101.

We urge family, friends and neighbours to keep an eye on vulnerable or older residents and relatives.

If you are worried about someone who is more vulnerable to scams call our ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778 and ask to speak to Trading Standards.
