Our quarterly survey

Receiving feedback from our tenants is important. It helps us understand what is most important and where we need to focus our efforts and resources.

We work with housing research specialist Acuity to carry out a short survey every few months.

A random sample of tenants are contacted about their overall perception of our Housing Service. Questions are based on a set of tenant satisfaction measures that the Regulator for Social Housing requires all social landlords to report on.

As a thank you, everyone who takes part in the quarterly survey is entered into a prize draw.

The table below details what you told us.

What are we doing with this feedback?

We know there are some low levels of satisfaction. We want to improve in all areas above and have developed an action plan that begins to address the areas where we have our lowest scores. This action plan sets out what we aim to achieve, and by when.

We will be reviewing this action plan regularly and updating it with progress made, and updating actions as more surveys take place. View our action plan and the progress we will be making.

What next?

We will carry out a satisfaction survey every three months. This is so we can be confident in knowing what our tenants really think of the services they receive. We will be using an external market research company so that the survey is carried out independently.

Results from the survey will be communicated to tenants through our My Home Bulletin, which is emailed out to tenants each month. We will also use our annual report to inform tenants of what is going well, and where we could improve.

When the Social Housing Regulator is ready for us to report results to them in Spring 2024, we shall report our scores, along with all other social housing landlords, and be able to see how we compare to others.
