Customer commitments

Customer commitments allow you to see exactly how Derwent Living is performing in the area where you live. As well as finding out if you’re getting the best level of service, you can also compare against the other areas in which we operate.

We have included targets for each commitment.  Targets were agreed with customers through a range of consultations, both at meetings and online.

Attending the meetings

Performance against the Customer Commitments is regularly reviewed by customers at the Derwent Living Performance Panel. This provides a way for customers to challenge Derwent Living to improve performance across the organisation and ensure that high standards are being met for all customers regardless of the area where they live.

If you are interested in coming to the Performance Panel meetings contact the customer engagement team.
