What we will do

  • Apologise when we make a mistake, or things go wrong

  • Recognise the needs of individuals, and take reasonable steps to meet them.

  • Reduce barriers that prevent tenant involvement by offering a wide range of options for engagement to suit as many people as possible

  • Communicate regularly about what we do using a range of different approaches

  • Provide clear timescales for responding to enquiries. Where we are unable to meet them, we will explain why

  • Ensure that we direct phone calls to the most appropriate person to deal with it, or arrange a call back as soon as possible

  • Make sure our letters provide contact details of a team member who can assist with enquiries

  • Ensure that staff and contractors identify themselves and will provide identification upon request

  • Be open and transparent when dealing with issues such as complaints

  • Publish our performance information and provide information about how we plan to improve services

  • Raise awareness of services we do not provide, and where appropriate, give details about how to access them through other organisations
