Each year a number of the strategic targets are set based on customer priorities called local offers. Local offers represent our commitment to improving the services we deliver. They are standards and actions that we agree with customers. To develop these priorities, we analyse tenant feedback from throughout the year. This gives a broader understanding of the issues that affect tenants and where you want to see service improvement. You told us… For 2016/17 YHN needs to prioritise the following:
  • Collecting rental income
  • Managing empty properties and the cost to the organisation
  • Repairs satisfaction level and how long it takes to complete a repair
  • Having decent neighbourhoods; listening to customers views and understanding satisfaction levels; and
  • How support makes a difference to older people living in our communities.
What we have done with this feedback…
  • We have developed 8 local offers to address customer’s priorities.
  • Over 245 customers were involved in deciding the local offers and from this 140 customers will go on to get involved in monitoring how we are performing against them.
