Listening and responding to the views of our residents, staff and stakeholders is one of our key values.
We give you the opportunity to be involved in areas across the organisation and this involvement can be formal or informal, for example, being involved in a project group through to attending a coffee morning.
We involve you in the governance of the organisation, service improvement and scrutiny, getting your feedback and also involve you locally at your scheme or home. You can read more about this in our resident engagement strategy. Resident engagement strategy 2023-2025[pdf] 223KB
If you're interested in becoming more involved please let your scheme or care home manager know, or alternatively complete the 'contact us' form.
We have a ‘Better Together’ programme.
Engaging and involving our residents is important to us. We constantly seek ideas, feedback and suggestions from our residents and their family in order to continuously improve our service. Here are some of the ways we gain feedback:
Resident meeting - Residents meet regularly with our care home manager, they share feedback, staff updates and plan events.
Catering meeting - Our Chef Manager arranges catering meetings so you can give feedback about our dishes and recipes, and make suggestions for the menu.
Resident satisfaction survey - Every year we formally ask residents for their feedback in a questionnaire. This is anonymous feedback about all areas of our service.
Relative satisfaction survey - It’s important that your relatives or close friends have the opportunity to share their feedback too so we share a questionnaire with them every year.
There are many ways you can get involved. Here are some examples.
We welcome your suggestions, comments and views on how to improve the services we offer. We also like to know when we've done a good job and met, or exceeded your expectations.
We recognise that from time to time things go wrong and you may feel you have not received the quality of service you deserve. In this case you have the right to complain.
Below is our complaints policy for both our housing and care homes.
