A service standard is something which tells you what you can expect from each of our services.
For example, the Maintenance service standards tell you what an emergency repair is and how long it should take to get it fixed. The Allocations service standards tells a new applicant what condition their new home should be in.
These service standards have been written with the help of residents. They have been discussed at Customer Advisory Panel (CAP) meetings, some at smaller meetings and residents on the Consultation Panel have given their views.
You may ask what difference these standards will make. The difference is that for the first time you know exactly what level and quality of service you can expect and if we do not meet the standards you can tell us. As well as getting feedback from you about our performance we will also monitor services to keep them up to agreement standards.
To accompany our service standards, full copies of all our housing policies and procedures are also available on request. Please contact your nearest regional office for more information.
