Corporate Social Responsibility


The aim of this statement is to clarify the position of the Trust and broadly outline our existing activity and approach to matters relating to Corporate Social Responsibility. 

Definition – the Trust defines CSR as:
“The responsibility of an organisation for the impact of its decisions on society and the environment above and beyond its legal obligations, through transparent and
ethical behaviour”


The Trust realises that it can contribute towards growth and sustainability in the communities in which it operates. The Trust’s pledge:

“We will act and do business in a fair, ethical and transparent way that contributes
to the health and wellbeing of our customers, colleagues and society”

CSR is part of what we do at the Trust and compliments our Corporate Plan, Strategies and Values. It can be broadly categorised into;

• Environment
• Community & Social Value
• Workplace
• Commercial Activity

Looking back at 2021

We take a look back at 2021, a year of significant challenge for everyone as we continued to adapt and respond to the challenges created by the pandemic. 

The Trust has been working hard to do all we can to support customers during this time. We are proud that we have been able to continue to deliver some significant achievements and create opportunities for the customers and communities we serve, which we hope this summary of our work over the last year highlights here.

Our priority going forward will remain not just to build back better, but to create a fairer and more equal society across our communities.

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.
