Join our Customer Voice group

We are committed to providing our customers with plenty of opportunities to get involved and help to shape, influence and improve the services we deliver.

Take a look at our different levels of customer involvement.

 

 

  • Low level Involvement

    This involves the least amount of time but still provides us with lots of useful information.

    Meetings and events

    Get involved with One Vision Housing by coming along to our local customer meetings or events.

    Walkabouts

    Organised by your Neighbourhood Housing Officer, walkabouts take place regularly with Residents’ Groups in certain areas to highlight issues and agree solutions.

    If these don’t happen in your area and you want to start them up, please let us know!

    Hot Topic Groups

    Burning issues – if there is an issue in your neighbourhood that we need to know about then gather a few neighbours together and we will come and visit to try and work through your issues and give you a voice.

    Customer Feedback & Surveys

    The simplest way to get involved is to give us your views by completing surveys. You can also give us complaints, suggestions and compliments

    A simple phone call, letter, email or conversation with one of our staff to tell us what we’re doing well or what we could do better can really make a difference.

    Community Development Fund Panel

    Our Community Development Fund is distributed to local volunteering and community groups that could benefit from funding to reach its goals. 

    We have a £10,000 fund available to support projects across the Liverpool City Region and beyond that to contribute to our vision for thriving, inclusive communities.

    Meetings are held to assess applications for our fund twice annually. 

  • Medium Level Involvement

    This involves a moderate amount of time and provides a medium level of influence.

    Residents’ Groups

    A residents’ group is a group of people living in an area, block or street who come together, usually once a month, to take up issues of common concern in relation to their housing and community.

    Groups are voluntary bodies of tenants representing the views of its membership and local residents to their landlord, the local authority and any other interested stakeholders.

    For residents wishing to set up a group in their area, we can help by offering Community Development Grant of £250 a year and can assist groups with booking venues for meetings and also sourcing funding opportunities.

    If you would like to join or start a resident’s group, please get in touch.

    Tenant Policy Review Group

    Periodic meetings as required with customer representatives to review our policies, including:

    • Input into policy development and review process
    • Proofread all customer facing policies

    No formal training is required.

    Independent Tenants Panel (Complaints)

    Meetings of trained panel members independently review complaints that have gone through our internal complaints process, at complainant’s request. 

    The panel act as intermediaries between complainants and OVH, can re-investigate complaints and response from OVH where the complainant is dissatisfied with the outcome (from two-stage internal investigation process).

    The panel can also make recommendations for alternative course of action or may agree with OVH’s response.

  • High Level Involvement

    This level of involvement means you will be dedicating several hours of your time each month; with the highest level of influence including:
