We are passionate about putting people first and involving our customers at every opportunity. Our Customer Voice Promise says we will value, listen to and act upon your feedback. Your feedback plays a big role to help improve our services. By understanding where we need to improve, we can really focus on tackling these areas and make a lasting difference.

Each of our landlord groups works with local customer involvement groups and scrutiny panels. Customers from all of the landlord groups represent views at our National Customer Group. We bring all of that feedback together into our Service Improvement hub so we can see what we are doing well, and how we can improve.
