Your Views Matter Residents Survey

Opening Doors – Enhancing Lives

As a resident of Clwyd Alyn and Tŷ Glas your feedback counts. Your views influence the way we plan and deliver our services and make improvements. In the summer, an independent market research company completed a telephone and online survey of 839 of our General Needs and Sheltered residents. For those residents who didn’t get the opportunity to complete a survey you can always share your Compliments, Concerns and Complaints with us by emailing complaints@clwydalyn.co.uk. If you would like the opportunity to receive future communication by email or telephone you can update your contact details using the Residents Portal or by emailing our Contact Centre on contactcentre@clwydalyn.co.uk. Clwyd Alyn and Tŷ Glas Housing Society welcomes suggestions to improve our services and deliver better value for money (VFM) to you our residents. Suggestions are particularly sought which are innovative and beneficial to us by cutting out waste and inefficiencies, and increase customer service, engagement and satisfaction. Residents can submit a value for money idea at any time, by emailing vfmsuggestions@pennaf.co.uk. Thank you to all those who took part. We will look in detail at all of the results and compare them to the last survey so we know where we need to improve the services we deliver to you. This report contains the key results for General Needs and Sheltered Housing.

This indicator takes into account services as a whole delivered by Clwyd Alyn and Tŷ Glas. Satisfaction among General Need’s residents has decreased by 3% since 2012. Satisfaction in our sheltered schemes has also decreased by 7%. We will look at individual ratings to find out why satisfaction has decreased and put measures in place to improve. We are required to meet the Welsh Housing Quality Standards and maintain your homes. General Needs satisfaction has decreased by 4.00% and Sheltered by 3% since 2012. Comments made by our residents indicate that property condition is an area we need to concentrate on. We will work with our residents to improve areas of concern. Repairs and maintenance is one of the most important aspects for our residents. Satisfaction has decreased for our General Needs population by 5% since 2012. Sheltered units have also decreased by 5%. When looking at the individual elements specific aspects of actual repair work carried out has improved but the overall satisfaction does not reflect this.

More than ever before we need to take into account Value for Money. This means managing our resources economically, efficiently and effectively to provide quality services and homes, and planning for and delivering year-on-year improvements in value for money. Satisfaction has decreased for both general needs and sheltered residents since 2012.

Reassuringly a very high percentage of residents feel that we have friendly and approachable staff across all housing areas. Helpfulness of staff and ease of contact has also increased since the last survey due to the Groups commitment to customer care. Final outcome and speed of response has however reduced, we will work with our resident groups to understand the reasons for this. 2.33% Disagree DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE THAT 3.66%CLWYD ALYN & TŶ GLAS HAVE FRIENDLY AND APPROACHABLE STAFF?

Opening Doors – Enhancing Lives

Digital Inclusion - General Needs & Sheltered

Repairs and Maintenance - General Needs & Sheltered

Digital access and skills are becoming vital to maintaining residents’ financial health and wellbeing. The digital world is changing and Clwyd Alyn Housing Association and Tŷ Glas Housing Society with it. Digital access and skills give residents great choice to lower cost services, can improve their employability, and connect with those isolated with friends and relatives.

Repairs and maintenance is typically the major factor for satisfaction being the highest priority for our residents. Overall satisfaction for repairs has increased in all areas and is encouraging that in its fourth year PenAlyn has had a significant impact on the way you feel about the service. The focus for the PenAlyn team is to improve service delivery, increase customer satisfaction and reduce costs. The team will initially focus on the areas where satisfaction was below 90% and why the overall satisfaction rating reflects a different picture to that below.

Our aim from the survey was to find out how many of our residents have access to the internet and what they use the internet for, this will then enable us to help residents who are not online to overcome the barriers. 58% of residents who responded have access to the internet in some form, with over half of residents accessing the internet via computer / laptop (56%) and (50%) accessing the internet via mobile phone. The most popular activity residents do online, is sending and receiving emails (67%), closely followed by social networking (63%) and buying goods and services (62%). 41.96% 58.04% No Yes 41.96% 58.04% No Yes RESIDENTS WHO HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET?

Clwyd Alyn and Tŷ Glas ensure we are Accountable to a host of different organisations and residents. We have invested heavily over the past four years to ensure that residents truly are at the heart of everything we do.

Whenever I have work done it has always been excellent. The workmen have always done a good job and clean up after themselves. The boiler needs replacing. It is not economical and is very temperamental
