Resident involvement strategy consultation
Derwent Living is currently in the process of reviewing its resident involvement strategy. The current strategy ran from 2011 to 2014 and during this time there have been many changes in the ways that customers are involved. We would like the new strategy to reflect this change to involvement, and we also want to get your feedback on the ways that we involve customers, now and in the future.
Please take 5 minutes to read the questions submit your responses, we appreciate any additional comments you may have. Closing date for responses is 21st September 2014.
Every completed survey will be entered into a prize draw for £50 of high street vouchers.
The resident scrutiny team is a skilled and dedicated group of residents who analyse and monitor our services. The team monitors performance to ensure that objectives are met and services are shaped around the needs of our residents.
A rough guide to scrutiny
The Resident Scrutiny team has space for nine members and we are always looking for new people to join. We have produced a rough guide to scrutiny which explains how the team works and how you can get involved.
The team has conducted reviews on areas including the repairs service and the role and remit of housing officers. Its recommendations are considered and acted upon by the board and executive team.
