In the coming weeks, the Institute of Customer Service will be emailing some of our customers to ask for feedback about our service.
We appreciate all the feedback we receive and want to share with you what we learned from our most recent survey in September and we want to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to respond.
Twice a year, we work with the Institute of Customer Service (ICS) to ask our customers about their recent experiences with us.
Understandably, it has been a challenging year for many of us. At times, lockdown forced us to reduce our services, and we recognise that these changes may have impacted the level of services you’ve experienced.
Last September, 621 customers took part in an online survey with these challenges in mind.
From your responses, we learned how we can deliver even better services. You can take a look at our December 2020 Performance report here.
How did our performance compare?
We received a total performance score of 74.2 out of 100. This score is higher than the average performance score of other housing associations.

Have your say
On March 25, ICS will be emailing 5,000 randomly chosen customers to take part in an online survey. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes. If you receive an email from ICS, be sure to provide your feedback before April 15. Your feedback will help us to further improvements our services.
Responses to ICS are completely confidential. We do not include any information in our reports that could personally identify an individual, so you can feel free to be completely honest with your feedback. Your responses will also be combined with many other customer responses to help us understand the opinions of different groups.
If you have any further questions about this survey, please email our Research and Insight team on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can contact our Customer Services team who would be happy to put you through to a member of the Research and Insight team.
