Improving our services

Beach day competition icon

Over the past year, we have been working with Acuity Research & Practice Ltd to collect your thoughts on our service through telephone surveys. We are pleased to be continuing this partnership with them for the next three years.

Thank you to all those contacted who completed the survey. We appreciate your feedback which gives us the best opportunity to review our service and implement improvements and changes.

If you have any questions or wish to opt-out, please contact the Customer Investment Team at or call 0208 633 8736.

Hitting the target icon


of residents were satisfied with ccha’s engagement with them (target 75%).

Overall, for the year, we met our target, but the result for this quarter is below target. We are listening to feedback and to ensure that we communicate with you in a way that benefits you.

Customer Service Standards

In May, you will have received an email or letter detailing our new Customer Service Standards that launched in April 2022. These standards represent our commitment to provide you with excellent customer service.

We completed our resident consultation in 2021. Overall, we spoke to 162 of you either through door knocking or via phone calls. Thank you to everyone who took part, and if you didn’t get a chance this time, we hope to do more resident consultations in the future.

We will be monitoring these standards each quarter to see how we are doing. Over time, we will look to develop and improve our standards to meet your needs.

We have set the below Customer Service Standards following the consultation, so you know what to expect from ccha when you contact us.

If you wish to visit us, please contact us first:

When you contact us:

  • We aim to ensure that you find us easy to deal with as your landlord.
  • We will treat you fairly and with respect.

We want to understand how you feel about the contact you have had with us so each year we ask you what you think about our service in the Satisfaction Surveys that an external company conduct on our behalf. We will be monitoring how we are doing on the above two questions to ensure our service is up to standard.

These standards and arrangements apply directly to ccha from 1 April 2022. We will publish how we are doing against them every quarter and look to develop and improve them over time.

Currently, we have slightly different arrangements with our contractors. However, we will be working with them to produce their own standards, which will be published by the end of the year.
