If you are a Council tenant or leaseholder and would like to get involved, then it could be one of the best ways of finding out what's happening where you live. It’s also a great way to meet new people.
We have a team of dedicated staff supporting Council tenant and leaseholder involvement in Rotherham.
You can meet our team at any of the following involvement activities:

STAR Survey (Tenants Satisfaction) Report
Earlier this year we carried out a satisfaction survey known as the STAR Survey (Tenants Satisfaction Survey). This helps us to find out what tenants think about our services and what we need to do to improve. An independent research company, BMG, was commissioned to carry out the survey on the Council’s behalf. They sent out a postal survey to a random sample of 4,500 tenants achieving a response rate of 28%. The feedback from the 2017 survey shows that we are performing well in most areas.
