Tenants Debt Advice Service – Northumberland

We were commissioned by Blyth Citizens Advice Bureau to evaluate the Tenancy Debt Advice Service. This project, which was delivered by the CAB and Homes for Northumberland, was found to be a viable alternative to bailiffs in recovering rent arrears and Council Tax. The evaluation was funded by the Millfield Trust Foundation; a summary can be read here.


"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre

"I am pleased with the honesty and thoroughness with which he (Christopher) dealt with the project. Thanks to the evaluation we now have a number of questions answered and a clear way forward."
