Your Views

Most residents are satisfied with their home and the services provided by ccha.

Since April last year, our survey consultants, Acuity, have been interviewing residents to find out what you think of our services. They spoke with 306 residents between April and September, which is around 20% of all ccha residents.

Overall, results found that most residents are satisfied with their home and the services provided by ccha. However, the results are not as positive as we would like.

Areas for improvement

their belief that ccha listens to their views and acts upon them

the communal window cleaning


We are actively reviewing our services on a regular basis to improve these results. You can read about the changes we have been making to our repairs service here. We have also introduced a Listening and Learning function to complaints, which will help ensure we listen and act upon residents’ comments.

Regarding the communal window cleaning, which happens 4 times a year, any concerns are addressed through regular contract meetings and reviews.

“For me, the property is quite nice, spacious, and when I call for normal repairs, they are quite quick. The contractors are polite, and the housing officer keeps us updated. They provide training which we can apply for, and when job vacancies come up around the area, we can apply for those. They also arrange summertime play for the children. The neighbours are quite good, the people they bring into the neighbourhood are good and we all get on very well.”
