Methods of consultation
How we might ask about or gauge tenants’ opinion about the service.
- Complaints and other feedback
- Road shows
- Tenant meetings
- Talking to Tenant Representatives
- One-to-one consultation about changes to your home
We use the information we receive to help us improve our service to you. We share the results of our consultation with you through the tenants ‘At Home’ magazine, leaflets, letters and the website.
The surveys we send out are anonymous unless you give us your name and address. Although, this means we are unable to respond to individual comments, we can make changes based on the comments made and the number of people telling us the same thing.
We consult with all tenants on major issues such as:
- The Housing Revenue Account - this sets out how the Council manages and maintains the housing stock and sets priorities for the future of the housing budget.
- The new arrangements for housing self-financing - this may enable the council to have more control over spending and make improvements to homes faster.
To meet tenants’ needs we consult our group of Tenant Representatives on any changes, amendments, developments and monitoring to the service. Not only do they give a tenants point of view on all service developments and changes, but they also assist the Council in making decisions and developing policies and procedures.
Census of all tenants
The census survey where we ask about your age, religion, ethnicity etc is used to make sure we are treating everybody in a fair and equal way. For example to ensure that the ‘At Home’ magazine gets to people in the way that best suits their needs, such as audio copy on tape or CD.
Our surveys are linked to the Census so we don’t have to keep asking you the same questions over again. The data from the census is encoded so that it is not readily accessible and is used for statistical monitoring of the service - not to monitor each tenant.
