New Customer Voice Strategy

The customer voice is important to Great Places and we want to make sure that your views are reflected in the delivery of services we offer to you.

In the early part of 2021 Great Places asked you what was important for customer involvement. This is what you told us:

  • Giving feedback to Great Places on services needs to be easy
  • Great Places feeds back information and shows how your voice has helped to guide services and performance
  • That Great Places meets its regulatory requirements including the Tenant Involvement & Empowerment standard
  • All customers are able to see how Great Places is performing
  • You wanted Great Places to make it easy to be involved

This feedback has now shaped our new Customer Voice strategy which sets out our promise to you for the next 3 years.

The main aims of the strategy are:

  • To understand our customers, making sure our data is right so we can tailor our services to you
  • To ensure that the voice of our customers is heard and influences service delivery
  • To improve our accountability and show the impact customers have
  • To strengthen our customer relationship and make sure that Great Places is trusted

Our objectives for this strategy are: 

  • To understand our customers, and your preferred ways to get involved
  • To use a customer led menu of options to engage you, to help you have your say
  • To improve opportunities for customer scrutiny and communicate this to our Board
  • To embrace technology and provide more ways to get involved
  •   To make sure we use your feedback to improve services
  • To keep you informed on the impact of your voice
