Looking back at 2020

Our festive season maybe different this year, but no matter what celebration you take part in, I hope that you are able to find some peace over the holiday period and that 2021 is a happy and healthy one for you and your loved ones. 
We look forward to working with you all in the coming year, where our focus will be on not just building back better, but also creating a fairer society with greater equality for all of our communities. Now is the opportunity for us all to work together to address the inequalities that exist across our region. 

Warmest Regards Wayne Gales - Chief Executive

Customer Satisfaction

We’re committed to listening to your views on our performance and one of the ways we do this is via our STAR (Survey for Tenant and Residents) tracker survey. Our tracker surveys continue to be completed every four months gaining the views of approximately 900 (14%) of customers each year. The feedback we gain helps inform our strategic decisions, is used to measure our performance and provides valuable information for our staff too.

The ‘tracker’ surveys will continue to be undertaken on our behalf by a company called Acuity Research. Calls will only ever take place Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 7.45pm, and on Saturday’s between 10.00am and 6.00pm. Customers will only ever be asked to complete a tracker survey once within a 12 month period.
