My Home improvements

We have a group of Digital Tenants that will take part in

regular feedback sessions about their experiences of using

our online services, and how we can improve them.

The first feedback session focused on booking a repair

through My Home. The group came up with these


• Make the current list of repairs clearer and easy

to understand

• Add more repairs you can book

• Introduce an option to reschedule repair appointments

• Bring in other sections such as information about our

additional services

Digital Tenant Loran Williams said: "I use My Home for just

about everything to do with my tenancy because I can use

it when and where I want at any time.

"It was nice to influence improvements to the repairs

section, and I'm already looking forward to the next

feedback session."

All the feedback has been collated, and will be

incorporated into an upcoming My Home update.

The main benefits are that the new supplier is 38% cheaper,

meaning we can reinvest more in homes and communities,

and they offer a wider range of features and colours to

choose from.

So how were tenants involved?

• Community Voice - two members visited different

suppliers with staff, and helped to agree the

new supplier.

• Digital survey - 469 tenants gave their thoughts on the

proposed colour ranges. Over 80% liked the choices, and

felt they covered a range of colours and designs.

• Drop-in sessions - Two sessions were held for tenants to

take a look at the physical and visual kitchen samples.

Nearly 90% said they were happy with the range as it is.

Keith Riley, Community Voice Vice-Chair who was involved,

described the whole process as 'absolutely superb'.

He said: " I was very impressed from start to finish. We

were listened to throughout, and I feel like we made a real


The new kitchens will now be available for all our new homes

and as part of our regeneration programme.
