We love hearing from you, whether it is good or bad, as we look at all feedback as an opportunity to learn and improve our services.

Here is an update on the feedback we have received over the period 2021/22:

  • Number of complaints recorded 2021/22 - 654
  • Number of complaints responded to within The Group’s timescales - 568 (86.9%)
  • Number of complaints responded to within the Housing Ombudsman’s timescales - 634 (96.9%)
  • Number of compliments recorded 2021/22 - 244

Some of the things we have done, following your complaints:

  • Due to feedback received regarding delays in works being carried out by multiple contractors, we have introduced a single point of contact to co-ordinate projects from beginning to end.
  • Following feedback from Progress Living tenants regarding contractors visiting their homes without prior notice or following correct procedures, a contractor induction form has been created. This ensures all contractors are made aware of the correct procedures they must follow before being allowed to enter tenant homes.
  • Following the publication of the Housing Ombudsman Code, we have improved the recording of feedback. We have also been promoting and providing further guidance to colleagues to enable them to resolve more complaints at the first point of contact. This has shown a clear improvement between quarters three and four in 2021/22.
