Understanding your views helps inform our decisions so we can improve where needed, and shape the services we provide to customers and communities.
The standards you can expect for our services are set out in our Customer Charter.
We also try to keep you informed about lots of other performance data through our website, social media and our bi-annual ‘Homepage’ e-zine.
We do this so that you know what to expect from us and can hold us to account if we fail to deliver as promised. Some of the information we provide includes our:
- Annual report, value for money summary and full financial statements
- Customer satisfaction rates
- Quarterly summary of feedback and complaints
- Financial and regulatory judgements
- Quarterly expenditure on developing new homes
We carry out work to keep you safe in your home and to ensure it meets Government safety standards. If we need to attend your home or update you on any important changes, including those to your rent and/or service charges, we contact you direct either by letter, email, text or phone.
To let us know your thoughts on how we are doing, please complete our short survey before 5 November 2021.

This standard sets expectations for registered social housing providers, such as Cottsway, to provide choices, information and communication that is appropriate to the diverse needs of their tenants, a clear approach to complaints and a wide range of opportunities for them to have influence and be involved.
