Our annual report for customers let's you know how we’ve listened to customers and involved them in the decisions we make. And how customers rate us as a landlord. Plus performance information to let you know how we are doing and how we are managing our finances to ensure we can invest in homes and services.
This year our focus has been on improving customer experience. Over the years our performance has been good. The speed at which we let available homes to those in need, and the number of customers we support to pay their rent and sustain their tenancies puts us amongst the top performing housing associations in the UK. But whilst our performance has always been good, we know that customer experience could improve. So, we are changing this.
This year has been about listening to customers. We are determined to improve the homes and services we provide - with our customers, at the heart of the changes.
We’re delighted to have a fantastic Resident Scrutiny Panel in place – a group of customers who are working with us to review and improve our services. You’ll read about some of the ways they are doing this throughout the report.
We also recruited Kate Gascoigne as Executive Director of Customer Experience. Kate has been working with our teams, to design new ways of working that will help us to improve customer experience.
We would like to thank everyone who has given us their views or taken time to get involved this year. With your help, we can make sure our services are truly designed by you, for you.
