Over the year ahead we are planning to publish much more information so that you can review our progress against key areas, including customer satisfaction with different parts of our service. We will also show you how we have made improvements to our service as a result of customer feedback and will share our progress against our current corporate plan targets that have a direct impact on our customers.
We are committed to getting the basics right, and will always prioritise the delivery of good quality, safe and customer-focused services.
The aim of the Customer Scrutiny Group is to bring together a group of up to 12 residents from across Elim, and for this group to have a role in a number of different activities that will help develop the way Elim works and delivers services for all its customers. This is likely to involve:

You Said: We need to make improvements to our maintenance services. One of the biggest issues was around poor communication and a lack of organisation around the scheduling and attendance of repairs.
We Did: We are already aware of these issues and are working with our new contractor to set out our expectations and a timeframe for improvement. If we do not see the improvement we require early in 2024 we will take further action. We are also looking at other options to improve our maintenance service, including the direct employment of a new maintenance operative in our Bristol area.
You Said: Can we promote the Household Assistance Fund more widely to customers who may be struggling to deal with the cost of living crisis this year.

This section will be updated at quarterly intervals over the year ahead. This is where we will share news of our progress against key targets, such as the delivery of the Elim Customer Portal or the launch of the new Resident Scrutiny Group. We will also tell you if our progress has fallen behind schedule and provide an explanation for the delay.
Complaints from residents are one of the most important ways that we get to hear about aspects of our services or our homes that require improvements. Each year we review all formal complaints received. You can read the most recent review here.
