What can you expect from us?

This guide sets out the service you can expect to receive from us when you give us feedback or if you decide to get involved. It describes what we do, the standards of service you can expect and how we will check we are meeting them. It also sets out the things we expect you to do to help us ensure the services we provide are great and that together, we are the best team in town.

Your involvement and feedback is really important to us. It helps inform the decisions we make and ensures the services we provide meet your needs. It also enables you to hold us to account and scrutinise the things we do to ensure we remain customer focused and achieve value for money. Full details on our approach can be found in our Tenant Engagement Strategy. Click here for more information.
