We show a sample of real complaints on our website that tenants have sent us and we tell you what we have changed or improved as a result. You can see them here.
We only show complaints once we have your permission and we never show names or full addresses.
We also have a Complaints Panel that meets every other month to look at how well we handle complaints, the quality of our written responses and how we can learn lessons. We are keen to learn lessons from Complaints so if you would like to get involved with our staff, contractors, customer service centre staff and other tenants then come along to our Complaints Panel meeting, of if you would like to know more call Yvette on 720 5877 or email email@example.com
