It’s simple really, if you want to be involved in what we do, at whatever level, then you can!
We want to put your experience of Rooftop at the heart of how we change and grow and get better at meeting your needs.
“Customer Engagement” is just another way of saying that we will listen and then we’ll do something about it. It’s simple really. If you want to be involved in what we do, at whatever level, then you can…
Resident Excellence Panel
The Residents Excellence Panel (REP) is a group of residents set up to scrutinise Rooftop services to its residents, to make recommendations for improvement and to act as a source of assurance.
The panel works from a list of services that are considered in need of a review. This list is prepared in consultation with residents to ensure we are looking at areas that matter to you. We aim to review between two and four service areas each year. When a topic is under review, it is looked at in the following ways:
Considering existing policies and procedures
Interview with the relevant senior officer
Interview with relevant officers delivering the service to residents
Working on internal scrutiny and the complaints review
Interview relevant partners Rooftop works with such as Wychavon if the review involved lettings
Shadowing staff Engaging customers via surveys including social media
When the review has been carried out, recommendations are made for changes to the service area.
The Rooftop Community Fund is a special scheme which is the responsibility of a group of Rooftop customers.
This group of involved residents works on your behalf to improve your housing and related services and the quality of life for residents and the wider community.
The group can distribute funds to projects which directly benefit residents in their local communities.
Routes of customer engagement
At Rooftop we aim to put customers at the heart of everything we do, and there are a number of ways that you can get involved with us to help shape our services.
Help us improve our standards
You can apply to be involved with us as a resident co-ordinator in a team of residents who are responsible for carrying out a programme of customer satisfaction research for Rooftop and other partners and reviewing our local service standards and commitment to residents.
If you would like to be involved with the Apt Quest surveying you need to be confident over the phone, and able to listen to and record what people are saying and able to listen to the views of other residents on our services.
You will be paid for carrying out this role for us. If you would like to know more about Apt Quest you can contact them by email on email@example.com
We know that some residents welcome the chance to be involved from home. So as to provide good quality services to our customers we have policies and procedures to guide how we work and to make sure that we provide excellent quality services.
Independence at Home group
This group was set up in November 2010 to encourage older customers who receive support as well as other services to get involved and give a view.
If you are interested in how Rooftop works to improve services for older customers then you would be welcome to join the group.
The group meets at least four times a year, and you would be expected to contribute to discussions on services to older customers including for residents living in our schemes, meet some of our staff and give your views on the activities programme for older residents.
Local residents' groups
By forming a local residents' group in your area, you will have the opportunity to address any issues in your community, make a case for changes and improvements to services we provide, and give your community a voice.
Because this is so important to the work Rooftop does you will receive training and money to help you set up a group and get together with other residents in your community to discuss local issues, and in return you’ll be expected to either meet regularly throughout the year, or get together for a short time to tackle a specific local issue.
As you get more involved you may want to look into a Tenant Management Organisation or TMO. We're always happy to talk through options for your community.
Customer input into policies and procedures
We welcome residents' views on how we carry out our work and by getting involved you can really help us get our work right.
If you want to become involved you’ll receive copies of policies and procedures that are being developed or reviewed through the post, so it’s ideal if meeting regularly isn’t possible for you. By getting the documents you’ll review the policy or procedure and send it back to us with your comments and suggestions. If you wish to remain involved you can join a small focus group of customers and staff to review the policy or procedure together.
If you would be interested in being part of a Focus group please contact your Neighbourhood Officer to advise which service areas you are interested in.
