Tenant Satisfaction Measures

As a social housing provider in England, from April 2023, we must collect data on a new set of tenant satisfaction measures (TSMs). These are part of a new system developed by the Regulator of Social Housing to assess how well social housing landlords are doing at providing good quality homes and services.

The measures are aimed at helping improve standards for people living in social housing, by:

  • Providing visibility, letting tenants see how well their landlord is doing, and enabling tenants to hold their landlords to account.
  • Giving the Regulator insight into which landlords might need to improve things for their tenants.

The TSMs are designed to see how well landlords are doing at keeping properties in good repair, maintaining building safety, respectful and helpful engagement, effective handling of complaints and responsible neighbourhood management. 

There are 22 tenant satisfaction measures, including 12 tenant perception measures and 10 management information measures.

We work with housing research specialist Acuity to carry out a short survey every few months so that we can report our tenant perception measures. As a thank you, everyone who takes part in the quarterly survey is entered into a prize draw. Management information measures are reported from data we hold within our Housing system.

What are we doing with this feedback?

We know there are some low levels of satisfaction. We ask tenants who are dissatisfied to tell us why so that we can put things right.  We want to improve in all areas above and have developed an action plan that begins to address the areas where we have our lowest scores. This action plan sets out what we aim to achieve, and by when.

We will be reviewing this action plan regularly and updating it with progress made, and updating actions as more surveys take place. View our action plan and the progress we will be making.

What next?

We will continue to carry out a satisfaction survey every three months. This is so we can be confident in knowing what our tenants really think of the services they receive. We will continue to use an external market research company so that the survey is carried out independently.

Results from the survey are communicated to tenants through our My Home Bulletin, which is emailed out to tenants each month. We will also use our annual report to inform tenants of what is going well, and where we could improve.

Results are also shared with our Tenant Board, so that they can hold us to account, and they can use data for any Scrutiny Projects.
