Your feedback really does make a difference to how we deliver our services.

We get lots of feedback and ideas for how we can improve our services - from surveys, consultations, focus groups, Facebook comments, complaints and of course conversations with our housing, maintenance or customer care teams.

We really appreciate your time and listed below are some of the recent improvements we have made by listening to your views.

  • We want more scheme visits

  • Nothing changes

    You said...

    • Nothing changes, so what's the point
    • Take time to listen to tenants and seriously listen to what they are saying

    ...we did

    • We've increased resource in our housing team so our housing officers have more time
    • We've increased resource in our maintenance team, and now have a dedicated surveyor for planned works and a dedicated surveyor for compliance and asset management.
    • We encourage residents to be 'involved' - to have their say and share ideas - and provide feedback from what they've told us
    • We have a new complaints process and always aim for a quick resolution
    • We have adopted the Together with Tenant charter, and will be asking for your views on this soon
    • We have introduced a Your Idea Matters scheme
  • We want a complaints form

    You said...

    • There should be a form for tenants if they want to make a complaint

    ...we did

  • We'd like more benefits support

    You said...

    • I'd like more individual support from my housing officer about benefits

    ...we did

  • Shared owners need more information

    You said...

    • Information for shared owners is not easy to find. The lease you’re given when you buy is ambiguous and the staff at times are not knowledgeable. A pack should be given to new buyer and updates sent out to each homeowner so they know what they are responsible for.

    ...we did...

    ...and we're doing

    • We're reviewing our moving in process for shared owners
  • Contractor appointments

    You said...

    • Contractors often don't give much notice of appointments and sometimes don't turn up at all

    ...we're doing

    • We have introduced daily meetings with our gas contractor and weekly meetings with our day-to-day contractor to manage issues and complaints
