As a resident your involvement is important to us whether this be sitting on a formal panel or taking part in a feedback survey. Your voice helps keep the residents of Suffolk Housing in the heart of all that we do.
Resident Scrutiny Panel
The Resident Scrutiny Panel (RSP) is made up of Suffolk Housing residents. Members have committed to be a portfolio holder and be responsible for a certain area. For example: Repairs, Grounds Maintenance, Gasway, Community Neighbour East, Community Neighbour West.
The Platform is a place where you can digitally share your views and opinions and tell us what matters to you via online surveys.
We will use your comments to help shape services from your perspective, always striving for outstanding customer service in everything we do.
And if you’ve signed up, each time you complete a survey you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win great prizes – what could be simpler?
Reasonable Adjustment to Services Policy
As a social housing provider, we have a responsibility to eliminate discrimination, ensure equality of opportunity and promote good relations between people that have protected characteristics.
Unacceptable Behaviour Policy
Our aim is to provide you with outstanding customer service, and it is important that both our customers and staff are treated with respect. Whether it’s via phone, email or face to face in our offices or your home, we aim to treat you courteously at all times.
Complaints and feedback
We aim to provide an outstanding service for our residents. However, we understand that sometimes things go wrong and you may be dissatisfied with the service you have received. We want to work with you to put things right.
Once we receive your enquiry, a member of our staff will investigate the problem and try to find the best way to put things right, ensuring you understand what is happening and when.
