Have your Say – Tenant Satisfaction Measures

Feedback from our customers is hugely important to Platform Housing Group and to the housing sector as a whole. That’s why the Regulator for Social Housing is introducing Tenant Satisfaction Measures, TSMs for short, in a bid to hold housing provides to account for their actions and give customers greater visibility of their performance.

What are Tenant Satisfaction Measures?

TSMs are performance measures, 22 in total, that all housing associations must report upon in a bid to drive up standards for customers and give them a better understanding of how we are performing as a landlord and service provider. The measures will give you, our customers, improved visibility and ability to hold us to account when things don’t go right. Results from every housing provider will be visible to everyone to view online, compare and question.  

The 22 satisfaction measures are split into 2 parts. 10 performance measures, that we will collect through management performance information and 12 customer perception survey measures that will have to be collected through surveying our customers directly – this is where you come in! It’s a chance to have your say.

The TSMs cover the following key areas:

  • Overall satisfaction   

  • Keeping properties in good order  

  • Maintaining building safety  

  • Safety checks  

  • Respectful and helpful engagement   

  • Effective handling of complaints  

  • Responsible neighbourhood management  

When is this happening?

From April 2023 all housing providers must start to collect data around the 22 satisfaction measures, that includes surveying our customers and from Summer 2024, this information must be reported to the Regulator for Social Housing to be made public, although the format of this is undecided.

To help us establish a clear baseline of these new measures and develop a clear action plan of possible areas that you feel that we need to improve we are completing a pilot survey.

As of 23rd January 2023 we will be working with partner IFF Research who will begin to contacting a random selection of customers via phone and email to collect the feedback for these 12 customer perception questions.

Just 10 minutes of your time will make a real difference to our services by providing us with the vital feedback we need to make improvements. Alongside this survey we will continue to talk to you and survey you when you have an interaction with us – including – repairs, your experience as a new customer, gas servicing, ASB, New Homes.

Please be reassured that the calls from IFF Research are genuine and calls will only come from this telephone number: 0203 148 7717

And from this email address: myresearch@voluntas.co.uk
